Grab a cup of coffee while you wait

How fun is this?! For those of you too lazy to click, it’s a machine available to retailers and libraries that prints and binds entire books in just a few minutes.  It made its library debut earlier this year in the New York Public Library’s Science, Industry, and Business Library. From what I’ve gathered via Google, the New Orleans Public Library currently has the prototype machine.  This machine really does sound like the coolest thing ever. It has access to over 200,000 public domain titles in almost any language and you get your book in ten minutes or less. How exciting for libraries, book sellers, and bibliophiles!
