  • Assistant Professor Masatoshi Ishikawa, Yoshihiro Watanabe, Takashi Komuro, Takashi Nakashima and H. Shibayama from the University of Tokyo have devised an ingenious new system to digitize books by just flipping them in front of a high speed camera. Masatoshi calls it Book Flipping Scanning (BFS) as it can scan at the speeds of 250-300 pages per minute and then the captured images are processed and stored in digital format. Ishikawa and his colleagues have created this technology to digitize books especially the ones biting dust in libraries so that the younger blood take more interest in reading such stuff. Once the book is captured using the Turner it is then observed in a monocular sequence and the reconstruction of 3D surface is done to form a flat format document that is appealing to the reader.
