Somehow I missed this post from Feb. 2006 on the Future is Yesterday blog (although I had seen the post after this on Atiz). In this post, Jared talks about the Scribe Book Scanner Project. You might want to read his previous post on the subject here.
Now...I was search on Atiz, which has a new book scanner. And...as someone e-mailed me...the Atiz scanner looks a lot like the Scribe machine!
