BooX / scanner for books

BooX
BooX

When books are being scanned by conventional scanners the spine of the book is heavily overstreched.

The bookscanner BooX enhances a careful handling of books through it‘s adapted design.
 Its triangular profile represents a save support for books to be scanned and is also a reference to an open book.

BooX is intended to be released in two versions. A compact model and an advanced version for librarys, which consists of a rotateable wall mount. 
By rotating BooX at 180° angle, not only is its formal nature is changed but its function as well. The opposite side of BooX, which is the counterpart of the scanner, works as a printing device.
