New Scanning Technology

I thought this was pretty cool. In an effort to get books scanned quickly for digital consumption, the Ishikawa Komuro Lab at Tokyo University is developing a technology that scans the pages as they are turned.
"Using a laser range projector to estimate page geometry, the camera adjusts for light and movement distortion as necessary and retains faithful copies of the original."
Sure beats turning the page, setting the book as flat as possible, scanning, turning the page, and repeating forever.
