Do you have a library of books that are not available in eBook form? Do you love combining power tools with classic novels? Then give this DIY book scanner a shot! Apparently it can scan up to 1200 pages an hour, depending on how fast you can manually turn the pages.
I highly recommend watching the video, as not only does it explain the reasons why the inventor created his book scanner, but he also gives a succinct, persuasive argument for the proliferation of eBooks over paper books. Plus it’s always worth watching when the instructions for how to build a scanner involve “dumpster diving”!
Remember, this is not for distribution purposes, and Gear Diary does not endorse or encourage anyone to pirate books. This is a project that is solely for your own personal use and your own personal books.
If you end up building one of these, let us know! (Preferably not from a courtroom where you are being sued by Simon and Schuster. Seriously, don’t pirate.)
