Scanner Cleverly Disguised As A Book

What do you get if you cross a scanner with a book? Well, erm, one of these I guess. This idea seems a little bizarre, but it is definitely unique and actually makes a rather bland looking scanner look slightly more impressive. A scanner has been modified to appear like a book, and charted his progress on his own website. Being tired of the boring aesthetics of a flatbed scanner, DataMancer took it upon himself to solve this issue, and add a degree of style to it. By hollowing out a book, the scanner was placed inside, and I'm assuming that any type of book can be used to suit your own personality.

It's always the strangest ideas that seem to achieve the highest attention, and I wouldn't be surprised to see scanner modifications popping up all over the internet fairly soon. How about a scanner, disguised as a coffee table, or a scanner disguised as a lamp shade? Ok, now we're being silly�

You can view the scanner / book and the progress made throughout his modification at his website.

This is avery innovative invention but I think you can change the cover of the book as it looks very boring

I really love the concept of using a beautiful book to hide some piece of technology(nicely executed) but im wondering if you can do it with something like a laptop(mainly because how many of us actually randomly carry around scanners?) or an electronic book kind of thing, or something that somebody could use when I a cafe exc...
