Machine scans 1,000 page book in four minutes

Posted on Friday, October 16 2009 @ 21:11:21 CEST by


CrunchGear reports researchers at the University of Tokyo have developed a device that can scan a 1,000-page book in only four minutes. For comparison, the device Google uses for Google Books is capable of scanning only 1,000 pages per hour. Unfortunately, there's still no machine capable of flipping book pages, so scanning books will remain a cumbersome task.
The core component of the device is a high-speed camera that can make 500 shots in a single second and is based on infrared laser technology. Users are required to manually flip the pages under the camera, which then makes shots of the print material. The device is able to scan everything that’s printed on paper, from character written in latin or other languages to graphs or photos.
