Zuta Labs Robotic Mobile Pocket Printer — Equipped with a unique mechanical drive system, WiFi connectivity for connecting to mobile devices and a battery that provides a full hour of printing, this little printer is not limited to standard paper sizes.
Print machines now-a-days are essentially a printhead running left and right on a moving piece of paper. We asked ourselves, why not get rid of the entire device, just put the printhead on a set of small wheels and let it run across a piece of paper. By doing so, we allow the printer to really be as little as possible.
How does it work?
The printer is activated by sliding a hatch at the bottom of the printer which will reveal the inkjet. The USB connection for battery charging is also located on the bottom of the device. The inkjet lasts for over 1,000 printed pages and the battery lasts for over one hour per full-charge. The first version will print in grayscale.
These printer is based on an omni-wheel system that allows it to accurately turn and drive in any direction. The printer was designed in a comprehensible manner in order to help the user place the printer properly at the top of the page and guarantee an accurate outcome. This version of the printer does not include stabilizing sensors. The printer comes in 2 colors- Mars black and Titanium white and will be made out of Polycarbonate.
Finally!! Mobile printing is really here. A printer that goes where you go & prints from your phone on any size page. The future is now.
