    BSFAuto Robot book scanner reads 250 pages per
    Gear  /  Tech

    The robot is called the BSF-Auto, created by Japan's Ishikawa Oku Laboratory. The BFS-Auto uses high speed, automated page flipping and real-time 3D page recognition to read a 250-page book in just one minute. That's about a novel per minute, an Oxford Dictionary in under 10 minutes.
    "BFS-Auto can achieve high-speed and high-definition book digitization at over 250 pages/min using the original media format. This performance is realized by three key points: high-speed fully-automated page flipping, real-time 3D recognition of the flipped pages, and high-accuracy restoration to a flat document image. This system is toward the practical use in 2013."
    The BFS-Auto is set to make its commercial debut some time in 2013, but you can see it in action now in the video.
