Looks great if it works as it seems. If you wanted to scan a whole book, I suppose you would have to make a V-shaped platen similar to the one in the standard build to make it easiest.

Looks promising. Hope they will get DPI higher than 36 (at least up to promised 250) and still it will take years until they develop specialized microprocessors that would allow to read images from those sheets and for devices to appear in the market.

Would love to get my hands on couple of these but A4 sized.
