ZutaLabs has designed a portable printer that can go anywhere, print from any mobile device, on any size paper.
The printer is outfitted for day-to-day life. It has a rechargeable battery and an on/off switch. It connects directly to smartphones, tablets, laptops and PCs, and allows the user to print on any size piece of paper.
The printer is equipped with a unique mechanical drive system; WiFi connectivity for connecting to mobile devices; and a battery that provides a full hour of printing at the rate of one page per minute.
Measuring 10cm in diameter and weighing just 350g, this printer is truly mobile.
One ink cartridge prints approximately 100 pages, and a conveniently-located hatch provides easy access to the ink cartridge for replacement.
To print, all the user needs to do is turn the printer to “on”; align the corner of the printer with the corner of the paper; and click “print”, or send the document to the mobile app, and it will start printing.
If you send several pages to get printed, the printer will stop when it gets to the bottom of the first page and wait for you to align it at the top of the next page.
Once the printer is placed on the next page, you can tap on the app and it will continue to print.
Both cartridges and pre-orders are available through the manufacturer. The printer is scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2017.
