(Reminds me a bit of how asexual and aromantic people feel: if you judge someone’s capacity for love based on whether they want to have sex or romance, they might live their whole life thinking that they’re broken.)
A new vending machine has been released which can print any book within minutes.
The Espresso Book Machine has access to 500,000 different books - the same as 23.6 miles of shelf space - and can even churn out a fresh copy of Crime and Punishment in just nine minutes.
Pages are printed at a rate of over 100 per minute and are then pressed, glued and cut to produce a pristine book.
Users simply pick the book they would like on a screen and wait for it to be printed … it certainly is a novel way of getting a new book.
I think this is the same machine used at the Harvard Book Store!
