-====== DIY Book Scanner ====== 
  
-There is a project to put an [[http://​www.diybookscanner.org/​|Open Source Book Scanner]] into every hackerspace. This page is to collect thoughts on costings and fundings for that at the Hacklab. 
- 
-Personally I (Gareth) believe this could be just as important community resource as the laser cutter and any future 3D printer we procure. 
- 
-===== How does it work ===== 
- 
-TL;DR – Point a camera at a book and take pictures of each page. You might build a special rig to do it. Process those pictures with our free programs. Enjoy reading on the device of your choice. 
- 
-===== Funding ===== 
- 
-Based on the pre-cut kit and a couple of second-hand Canon Powershots, I think we can pull together a build with £500 of pledges.
