A new vending machine has been released which can print any book within minutes.
The Espresso Book Machine has access to 500,000 different books - the same as 23.6 miles of shelf space - and can even churn out a fresh copy of Crime and Punishment in just nine minutes.
Pages are printed at a rate of over 100 per minute and are then pressed, glued and cut to produce a pristine book.
Users simply pick the book they would like on a screen and wait for it to be printed … it certainly is a novel way of getting a new book.
"a novel way” ..

david cameron just announced that if reelected in 2015, the conservatives will remove all government benefits for under-25s.
apparently, we should be “earning or learning”.
does he understand that about a fifth of the country’s 18-25-year-olds are unemployed?? does he actually want them to starve on the streets? this is not going to help people “earn or learn” anything, jesus fucking christ.
how is this meant to persuade people to vote for him? have we got to the point where the conservatives’ target voter demographic has been persuaded that unemployed people are literally too much of a drain on society to be allowed to live??
i graduated with a 2.1 degree from one of the best universities in the country, and was still unemployed for about 18 months after graduation. as a self-employed 23-year-old, i now probably count as a ~success story~ in the eyes of the tory government, but the ONLY way i got to this point is thanks to a combination of government benefits and the fact that i could move back in with my parents while working temporary, low-paid jobs in call centres etc. in fact, around half of my friends who are under-25 are either unemployed, living at home, or both. and that’s after graduating, often with masters degrees. but plenty of people don’t have the option of moving in with their parents, or fucking around with postgrad education. how the hell are they supposed to stay alive in this hypothetical future where young people have to “earn or learn”, and receive no help from the government?
P.S. FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT YESTERDAY, THE HOME SECRETARY ANNOUNCED PLANS FOR THE UK TO PULL OUT OF THE EUROPEAN CONVENTION ON HUMAN RIGHTS AS WELL. who needs human rights, anyway.
Do you have any idea how fucking terrifying this is people?
I can’t even put into words how much this scares the shit out of me.
The Conservative Party conference was harrowing: Theresa May literally actually said she wants to scrap the Human Rights Act. Like, just read that sentence and you can adequately gauge what Tories must be like as human beings. And now David Cameron literally wants to take away all the money that poor people have because they’re not trying hard enough?
Oh wow, reblogging for Alexander’s commentary, because GETTING RID OF THE HUMAN RIGHTS ACT?
