Page Flipping and Scanning at 250 ppm
If there was ever a device that was badly needed it is this toy. The mass of books out there that need to be preserved electronically are a small tip of the iceberg. What is way more important are medical records in particular. We have not come close to establishing a system there because of the legacy problem. This technology easily resolves that completely. An office can simply bundle and likely staple bind a stack of material for a given patient, run it through the device, do a quick confirmation check and throw away the paper record there and then.
Every business has the same problem and binding documents in some form of temporary system has been often used as a solution. It always becomes a pig for space. Law offices of course need this even more since they are expected to maintain their records to boot.
Just filing a year's invoices in a bound bundle makes them readily accessible and secure. Putting them into electronic form ends the physical storage issue.
So this technology allows vast amounts of material to be stored chronologically and generally put out of mind against a plausible risk of need, until a set point is reached when the data itself can be simply checked once and then destroyed.
