How to: Make LEGO powered Automatic Book Scanner
When we featured the plotter made with LEGO blocks in July, we thought that was quite amazing. But, then we had geeks with LEGO based knitting machines and all other kind of crazy gadgets made with LEGO blocks that each one of such hacks looked even more crazier and awesome.

Sheer genius. The details and plans for building one such scanner are here.
