Overview

I'm building one of these, with a few modifications that will hopefully simplify the design and make it portable.

Design sketch:

DONE:

  • bought two 10MP cameras
  • bought one e-reader in eager anticipation of completely scanned bookshelf

TODO:

  • fabricate A/C adapters for the two cameras (or buy, if it proves not worth it)
  • buy/borrow/steal two plates of plexiglass or acrylic
  • construct frame and rest and platen and operating arm and bike-brake triggers
