I know this has already been on wired and slashdot, so many of you have already seen it, but it's freakin rad.

Heck, I'd love this with a tablet pc. Write directly on the textbook, notes and everything.

It'd be even better if someone added an automatic page turner

i think the cheapness is worth it.

the the library has more than one automatic book scanner back there but they aren't cheap and you can't just go back there. It would be cool to check out the textbooks you need for the semester and scan them though.

Wait... WHAT?!? I've been scanning old Yearbooks manually for the past semester, and they fail to tell me they have automatic book scanners?!
