I finally put together an idea for a book scanner and I am going to start working on it in the next week or so. I just bought two Canon PowerShot A2200's for a great price. If you will go to a Walmart and talk them into selling you the floor model with the box, cables, charger, battery, AC adapter, and everything else in other words a complete setup you can get it for $56.35 out the door. I am going this morning to a close Walmart and see if I can talk them out of their floor model so I have a backup. I see Daniel and others post about updating the bios in the camera and a USB remote. Can someone please elaborate on these items for me? Thanks and look forward to hearing back from some of you. I guess I am going to try to make a cross between the Book Liberator, Ion book saver, and another portable model I have seen. The only difference is I will not promise something I can't deliver. So if a couple of you want to pitch in we can make this happen. I don't want something big and bulky I am shooting for something portable and I have a really good ideal on the table so let's turn it in to a reality. I also am shooting in making out of material that is readily available and you don't have to pay $60.00, $70.00, or more to get it cut. The average person doesn't have the tools or the skills to do such tasks. I want this where anyone can build it with minimal problems.
