 +== Other Similar Efforts ==
 +
 +  * The [[http://​diybookscanner.org/​|DIY Book Scanner]] project is doing very similar work with very similar parts. ​ If you're looking for alternate designs along the same lines, they'​re the first place to look.
 +
 +  * The [[http://​archive.org/​|Internet Archive]] has a some large Scribe machines and [[http://​sourceforge.net/​project/​showfiles.php?​group_id=140874|some free software]] to go with it.  The machines are described in [[http://​redjar.org/​jared/​blog/​archives/​2006/​02/​10/​more-details-on-open-archives-scribe-book-scanner-project/​|this article]].
 +
 +  * CopyBooks: Another Brooklyn-based book scanner developer has a [[http://​copybooks.childrenofmay.org/​|laser cut scanner]] available with some custom software for page splitting and de-warping.
 +
 +  * The [[http://​longnow.org/​|Long Now Foundation]] is developing a software tool to easily convert documents between digital formats.
 +
 +  * Kirtas makes a neat robot that automatically turns and flattens pages. There'​s good video of it on YouTube, [[http://​www.youtube.com/​watch?​v=UyB5c3S4vzc&​feature=related|here]] and [[http://​www.youtube.com/​watch?​v=h2SzGcylZVE&​feature=related|here]]. Looks way expensive, but also way cool.
