Workshop: Building a High Speed DIY Book Scanner
The entrance for the space is on the backside of the building in the alley -- NOT at the mailing address. See this satellite view for clarification: http://bit.ly/8Arvpt
You must go down the alley behind the building. There is a large white garage door - that is BrainSilo. The BrainSilo sign will usually be hanging up as well.
Wish you could study faster, search through all your books in seconds like Google does (even when unavailable on Google), and get digital editions of those books currently unavailable through Amazon, Barnes and Nobles' or other online providers? Come learn how!
We will teach you to build your own high-speed (2000 pages per hour) book scanner from inexpensive parts! Daniel Reetz, the hardware guru who started the DIY book scanning project, will lead the discussion and assembly. We will donate one of the assembled scanners to Portland State University's Disability Resource Center (DRC). Any donations to our organization are tax free.
The Paper Upgrade Project, a 501(c)(3) IRS tax exempt public charity, is sponsoring this event (below for details).
