See a hardware prototype of an automatic, non-destructive book scanner. The machine turns pages automatically, and captures high-resolution images of each page. It was developed in 20% time, and built in the Google Workshops.

There will be a live demo and a short technical presentation, describing the design process.

Speaker Info: Dany Qumsiyeh is an engineer on the Google Books team.
