What are the applications of this new technology?
MIT researchers and their colleagues are designing an imaging system that can read closed books.

In the latest issue of Nature Communications, the researchers describe a prototype of the system, which they tested on a stack of papers, each with one letter printed on it. The system was able to correctly identify the letters on the top nine sheets.

This new imaging system will be useful for reading the antique books in Museums without touching them, and it could be used to analyze any materials organized in thin layers, such as coatings on machine parts or pharmaceuticals.

Anyway, currently the cost of this system is around 100k, so it is still not in a position to be mass-produced for everyday use.

Where it can be used?

Ancient scripts where pages are "glued" to each other and until now had to be mechanically separated at the risk of damaging them? Consider

It should also speed up the digitization of printed material.......

You could use it to read your sister's diary.

In forensic science, where ID, an address book or a letter is hard to decipher because they've been soaked with water or blood - or worse.
In espionage, for all kinds of sealed documents.

And, of course, the standard application of all new technology: looking up girls' knickers.

For this reason a man will leave his father and mother... and build a rocketship... yea and many useful home appliances too.

So this tech is the logical progression from the mirror on a stick then?

You could create a 3D printed version of any book that previously was only available in a reference section of a library.

Could it be used to more accurately display where cancer cells are in a person's body ?

Uses in geology on a large scale parcel of land ?

If the history of genetic sequencing is anything to go by, even outrageously expensive technologies like that can become very cheap given enough time, research and ingenuity.
