What if you could go into a bookstore where it is possible to get a printed version of any book. In Paris, France, the first print on demand bookstore is now being launched with an “Espresso Book Machine”. This is a printing machine that is small enough to fit in a small bookstore and a book with up to 800 pages is produced within minutes.  The book buyer searches a database for all available books where the price is the same as in a traditional bookstore. Then make the order and the book is printed immediately. The technology has been in use for a while in the US, both in university libraries and bookstores, and now is entering France. Source: PressTV
