Have you ever tried scanning a book via a flatbed scanner? Oh boy, it’s for jerks. Horrible experence. Book scanners are traditionally something that only Google and the Library of Congress employ. Then there’s the upcoming Ion Book Saver. This one is for you and I.
This guy isn’t the size of a John’s Honda Fit. Nor does it use a fancy mechanical page-turning device — you’re the page turner in this scheme. But even without the fanciness of the large machines, the Book Save should still get the job done with the ability to capture both pages of an opened book at one page-a-minute rate. The images are stored on a SD card for easy portability. The Book Saver should hit this summer with a $189 MSRP. [Ion via SlashGear]
