Watch a Robot Read a Book


The BFS-auto-book-scanning robot can scan up to 250 pages a minute, which will aid in digitizing physical books. This new book scanner robot is supposed to come out sometime in 2013. Thank god for that, we won’t need to read physical books anymore one these things start digitizing everything.

Fez should get one of these to help him work on his personality...but he'd just take it to the falls and push it over like poor skippy...I can see him now,in his little cat barrel..heading for the falls at ever increasing speed...meowing "cookie,cookie"... Then nothing but the roar of falling water and the cheers of one murderer...fed whatley

They cut out when the jock slaps the book out of the robot's hand and calls it a nerd.

This would be more enjoyable if the robot was shouting "INPUT" while it read
