@Antedeluvian: Surely is must be easier to create some software to read paper tape on the scanner.

If the program were only a couple of feet long ... maybe ... but what if it's 100s of feet long?

I came across a post that describes how to read vinyl records using a scanner. Surely is must be easier to create some software to read paper tape on the scanner (or something else). I did a Google search and found how to read a punch card  with a camera. There is an Arduino Punch Card Reader

Any volunteers?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
