Blog post: You Listening, Google? Rocket-fast Japanese Page-Flipper Could Revolutionize Scanning

The Ishikawa Komuro Laboratory in Tokyo "has developed a scanner that can turn pages and scan their contents - text and images - at 1000 frames-per-second with a minimum of distortion." (from E-Reads)

I cannot imagine how this works. If anyone has seen demos of this, please let me know!

If this really works, then the next question will be which hardware vendor will get their hands on this technology? (Or maybe the question is who has already gotten their hands on it?!)

Jill - I think the system simply uses a 1000 fps camera - the actual page turning rate may well be (very) different.
