Book Scanner

Our i2s CopiBook has arrived:

We are still experimenting with it, but so far my favorite feature is the semi automation: set a book on the scanner, position it, get all you settings ready, do your first scan, when the scan is done the glass pops open allowing you to turn the page, the next scan is taken as soon as the glass is pressed back into place. Set up and training took a full day, but most of that was spent on the lights, which necessitated a trip to Home Depot, a few hours of fiddling, and some tech support to get the lighting profile calibrated correctly. The scans look great though, and the scanner is generally very easy to use. Hopefully we will be getting the machine into production next week.

    Make that Toni Fortini, her fancy new cell phone, and her degree in visual arts.

    That top picture makes me think of the monolith in 2001: A Space Odyssey. (I’ll have that music in my head all day.)

    As long as apes don’t start throwing bones at all is well.
