ATIZ BookDrive: The World's First Portable Automatic Book Scanner
/* Story Top Left 2010 300x250, created 7/15/10 */ google_ad_slot = "8340327155";

The ATIZ BookDrive is the world's only scanner featuring a page turning mechanism to digitize a whole book completely automatically.

Art Sarasin, President of ATIZ, tells us that there are only two other fully automatic book digitizers, which use cameras (Kirtas and 4Digitalbooks), but these are huge machines. I guess Google and Amazon are using those for their book ripping ventures.

The ATIZ BookDrive is not much bigger than a standard desktop scanner. The price of the BookDrive is considerably high with about $35,000, making it only interesting for Universities or libraries, but not for home users. The Atiz BookDrive is scheduled to ship in March.
More details and pre-order on the Atiz site.
