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�
