So you want to be the next Google. You've hooked yourself up with a sweet search algorithm, set up the server farm, and have AJAX out the wazoo. Now it's time for the nitty gritty like book scanning, which you can accomplish with your very own Fullauto Bookscanner made from LEGOs and other spare gear.

It's all controlled by a laptop which also receives the scans. Now all you have left to do is deal with a few lawsuits from publishers and you're set.
