Nifty update this morning on NPR of ongoing progress on a visual scanning technology for reading records that the Library of Congress is funding. A no-toucha-my-vinyl routine which will preserve a whole lotta music without damaging the original artifact. Basically this machine takes a photo of the groove and strings it out in a line – wouldn’t it be great if you had a photo an inch wide and several yards long of each groove in your collection. Busted record? Big girls don’t cry, Fergie. One sweet feature is you can scan your cracked or broken records and the computer will clean it up for you. Now if anyone has seen the other half of this one we’re in business.
