Re: Scanning a Book for a lonely world traveler - $40

That book is less than 300 pages according to Amazon UK. The book costs £6 (about $10), so it would probably be cheaper, easier, and you would get a better-quality scan by buying it and scanning it destructively. You can check my website: www.rustee-technologies.com

Re: New Portable Scanner "Pazuzu"

Doesn't the use of a counterweight defeat the purpose of building a lightweight scanner? You'd probably be better off using a tension spring. It's lighter, cheaper, and it would reduce inertia as well.

I don't like to give people a hard time with foreign names, so I let everybody call me Jack (in fact, I like that name more than Joaquin). I finished a degree in maths from UC Berke...
