Japan’s Ishikawa Oku Laboratory just came out with the BSF-Auto robot, and this bot is quite a bookworm. The BFS-Auto uses high-speed, automated page flipping and real-time 3D page recognition to read a 250-page book in just 60 seconds. That means BSF-Auto can get through approximately 1 novel per minute, and read the entire Oxford Dictionary in under 10 minutes!

The robot is pretty impressive, considering it can work with the original medium and not digital text.
