Just watch this.

You can thank me later.

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.

you’re shitting me

the quality of this “book” is not better than a photocopy. might as well download an electronic version and save paper. 

this machine does not produce a “book”. it produces printed paper. 

it’s really not the same. 

Oh my fucking God what is up with book elitist hipsters on Tumblr excuse me while I caps lock.
WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU EXPECT A BOOK TO BE
PRINTED PAPER IS LITERALLY A BOOK
HERE’S A BOOK:
THE DICTIONARY
DO YOU READ IT
LET ME HELP YOU
BOOK (N):

1. A WRITTEN OR PRINTED WORK OF FICTION OR NONFICTION, USUALLY ON SHEETS OF PAPER FASTENED OR BOUND TOGETHER WITHIN COVERS 
2. A NUMBER OF SHEETS OF BLANK OR RULED PAPER BOUND TOGETHER FOR WRITING, RECORDING BUSINESS TRANSACTIONS, ETC
HONESTLY THESE FUCKING WHITE HIPSTERS WHO THINK THEY ARE SO EDGY BECAUSE THEY ARE ELITISTS
I DON’T FUCKING LIKE YOU

Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels: The Communist Manifesto
Reader Submission: Title and Redesign by Neil Huber.

I’d argue this would be a better title for Das Kapital…either way, lulz all around.
