The Story

While pursuing his doctorate at George Mason University, Sarasin Booppanon was fed up with having to commute from home to school just to spend hours later in the library slowly photocopying books assigned by his professors. It was obvious that an automatic page turning scanner, if only had it existed, would be the device to alleviate this labor-intensive, time-consuming task. To bring this idea to life, he later founded Atiz Innovation Co., Ltd. located in Bangkok, Thailand in 2005 and a year later the team successfully developed BookDrive®.
