This Printer Fits In Your Pocket And Works Anywhere

Smartphones, tablets and laptops have made the work much easier but printers have been cumbersome to carry. 

A mobile sized robotic printer which is the size of a three stacked hockey pucks will enable people to print anywhere on pages of any size has been developed by Zuta Labs.

Evolution of small size printers

Zuta Labs, based in Jerusalem reasoned that printers these days are basically print heads running on a moving paper. Their approach is to run the printer across sheets of paper. This has allowed printers to become smaller.

The device supports wireless connectivity with smart phones, laptops, PCs, tablets with Android, iOS, OS X and Windows. The printer can print on any paper of standard size and on any surface. An average A4 size paper is printed in 50-60 seconds with 300 dpi resolution.

A free app provided by the company lets you print using this device. The device is switched on and it is aligned with the corner of the paper. The omni wheels fixed into it help in turning and moving in any direction. Laser sensors control its movement, speed and location. 

If several pages are sent to the device, it stops at the bottom of the first page and waits until placed at the top of the next page. Users can continue to print by tapping on the mobile app again.

The printer’s battery (a rechargeable lithium-polymer battery) can last for 1 hour, which means it can print about 60 pages at once. The device can be charged via micro USB port and takes 3 hours to charge fully.

The ink cartridge can print more than 100 pages. The device currently prints only in black. Zuta Labs is planning to create a full color printer in future. Cartridges are replaced via a hatch at the bottom of the printer.
