DIY Book Scanner
A colleague sent me a link today that is too good not to share — instructions on how to build your own book scanner using Lego and a variety of other items that most geeks will have on hand or be able to get easily.
Dick Eastman found the same instructions after his return from the ALA conference earlier this week where he had watched the Kirtas APT BookScan 2400 in action, but suffered sticker shock from the $120,000 price tag.
If anyone else in libraryland gets inspired and builds their own scanner from Lego and kite string, be sure to let me know and post the pictures on flickr!
