Books On Demand

Something I've been waiting for looks like it may finally be feasible ... the ability to have a book printed on demand.

According to this article, there's a machine called the Espresso that will start to appear in libraries and bookstores next year.

Why would one want such a thing, you ask? Well, I can't remember what the precise percentage is, but the vast majority of books are out of print. There's no way to get them, other than small snippets at a time via Google Books.
