DIY Book Scans

Fuck Kimble this is WINble

How the super-humans of the future will laugh at our ancient paper texts bound in the skin of beasts! The era of print is drawing to a close. Portable readers like the Kimble are the first nails in the coffin, but are awkward, pricey and associated with bollock sucking. The bait that draws the piranhas of technological innovation is copyright theft.

In the future everything must be free for the super-humans. Lets make this a world fit for them to live in by scanning all the books that exist and publishing them on the Internet. That'll learn the Man. The Man fears DIY book scanners because they make information easier, cheaper and faster to access and share. The man wants all the informations, but there is nothing he can do to stop you getting a cheap scanner that takes hi-res photo images of your Harry Potter books that you can email to Internet pirates while pissing on an effigy of J.K. Rowling.

This technology seems to be little more than a photographic device suspended above a V shaped stand, upon which a text is placed. The laser cut wood makes it all look very special but the general idea is simple. The Man hates simple things. they remind him of his childhood, confusing memories of a time before he began consuming the flesh of third world children. You can make your own scanner if you have some lights, some wood and a digital camera with a resolution higher than 8mpix or 7 for smaller texts. These guys make and sell them with skill to the max and they have patented that shit, so you might as well buy one of theirs because if they sued you for piracy, the irony, like the ejaculation of The Man into the mouths of mentally disabled sweat shop workers, would be far too much to swallow. Either way you should check out their website for examples of these visionary creations and to lurk on the forum so that you can learn the secrets of capturing books in digital form on the cheap. Let the Man tremble at a DIY book scanning revolution.
