Bibliophiles may appreciate this video of "The Robo-Librarian".
Seattle's Evening Magazine visited the King County Public Library distribution center to profile the "Tin Man," the largest book-sorting machine in the country and the humans that feed it.
The monster is half the size of a football field and processes between 38-45,000 books a day.
Its job is to Sort-Scan-Plop, Sort-Scan-Plop all day long.
Interesting tidbit - aside from the King County Library system having the largest book-sorting operation for physical books they also lend more ebooks than any other library system in the country!
