A new vending machine has been released which can print any book within minutes.
The Espresso Book Machine has access to 500,000 different books - the same as 23.6 miles of shelf space - and can even churn out a fresh copy of Crime and Punishment in just nine minutes.
Pages are printed at a rate of over 100 per minute and are then pressed, glued and cut to produce a pristine book.
Users simply pick the book they would like on a screen and wait for it to be printed … it certainly is a novel way of getting a new book.
Closest one to me is 1hr away.
… I wanna go.
THERE’S ONE AT THE MSU LIBRARY. I CAN FUCKING PRINT MY BOOK OUT WHEN I’M DONE WRITING IT. HOLY SHIT.
This might well be the most beautiful, magical thing that I have ever laid my eyes upon
Why did I not already know about this? Amazing!
It’s SUCH an awesome idea :D
