Coffee table books, in more ways than one

The Expresso Book Machine has opened for business in London.

No liquids coming out of this one - it's books!! It prints over 100 pages a minute, clamps them together, binds, guillotines and finally spews the finished book out.  Time names it among one of the best inventions of the year.

Right now the machine is printing only past-copyright works, like most of the classics you find in Project Gutenberg. 

If you're in London drop by at Charing Cross Road, at Blackwell bookshop, and get a book printed right in front of you. The bookshop is now negotiating with publishers to allow it to print their copyrighted works.

Update: More new pics of the Expresso
