Robots Rapidly Digitize Media Libraries

The Robotic Book Scanner from Qidenus uses a series of technology to automatically turn the pages of a book and scan its contents into digital media. The product is currently used mainly by large university libraries, book archives, and companies, but lower-end products will soon come to market that will make the technology more accessible.

NO RATINGS
So true about the printed books, Elizabeth.  I tend to stick with those for most everything but reference (where a search feature is useful).  Not a fan of e-books for personal reading.  You just can't do as much because your bound up with licensing rather than ownership.  With a paper book, I can do whatever I want except actually copy it.  I can loan it to a friend for whatever time period I want, I can give it to somebody, donate to the local library, or put it in a box knowing full well that I can read it in 20 year...or somebody else can after I'm long gone.  Not so with the ebooks.
