Print on Demand ATM for books

From SMH, via my Mum:

Imagine walking into a book store and knowing that even the most obscure or out of print books will always be in stock.

Angus & Robertson today became the first Australian book chain to install the Espresso Book Machine (EBM), capable of printing, trimming and binding a paperback book on demand within minutes.

It was dubbed an "ATM for books" by Time magazine, which last year named it one of the best inventions of the year.
