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.

Well that’s real fuckin’ neat.

But… that’s a huge waste of trees.

But wouldn’t a print-on-demand system be less of a waste of trees than printing off thousands of copies of a book hoping they’ll sell?
