Gone will be the days soon where students must lug heavy textbooks around campus and back to their dorms and houses. The rise of e-books and e-reader devices are a testament to this. Whether reading the digital materials on their tablets, notebooks or phones — the options are there. But now comes the question, what of those who already own the physical books, and don’t want to spend more on getting the digital ones? This is where Book Saver Book Scanner by Ion Audio comes into play.
Using a unique design to help you scan each page of the book accurately, the Book Saver Book Scanner is your best bet to create digital collections of your physical books. But yes, while everything will be done automatically by the system, you still have to flip the pages yourself.
Here’s what the scanner does do: it will ensure that the book is in the best position for scanning, thanks to the utilization of an angled cradle. The scanner features two cameras with integrated flash. All you have to do is click the snap button to take the picture, flip to the next page, and repeat the steps until the very last one. Wondering how long it would take you to scan a whole book? The company estimates that a 200-page book will take about 15 minutes. The scanner will retail for $150.
