I\'m not sure if it has an application in the library world, but, the \'ATM for books\' is eight feet long, 38 inches wide, it can produce a book in 12 minutes, and costs $82,000. The MTI PerfectBook-080 machine could change book stores as we know them. Instead of allowing books to go out of print, you can store them as digital files and publish them \"on demand\" in bookstores, while customers wait, using self-contained book printers.
Does something like this have a place in a library?
