We've certainly seen plenty of book scanners before, but upstart Atiz has now rolled out what it claims to be the very first "consumer book ripper," although with a price of $1,595, that title is certainly ripe for a challenge. Still, it looks like the system should get the paper-to-PDF conversion job done quite nicely, with a promised scanning rate of 500 pages per hour (although that partly depends on how fast you can flip the pages -- no robot arm here, unfortunately). The "ripping" itself is done by a pair of digital cameras (not included), and it seems that only a select number of Canon cameras are compatible with the device (at least officially). Atiz also apparently offers a DIY model, but those looking for a more polished solution can order the ready-made BookSnap directly from the company right now.
