Nowadays, thanks to our smartphones, tablets and laptops, we can go anywhere that we want and stay connected while on the go. However, if we need to print something out, we have to run back to our offices or homes to do it. Well, according to ZUtA Labs Ltd., not anymore! Meet the Mini Mobile Robotic Printer that you can carry with you at all times and print out documents directly from your phone/tablet/laptop.
The ZUtA Labs team has created an innovative little device for all of us struggling to find a place to print something out when a full-sized printer is not available. The Mini Printer measures 10 cm (height) x 11.5 cm (diameter) and weighs around 300 grams. It’s made of a polycarbonate material and features a portable and sleek design. The printer comes in two colours – Mars Black and Titanium White.
How does it work? You don’t put a piece of paper into the printer (there’s nowhere to put it, seeing that it’s tiny), but place the printer on top of a blank sheet of paper and let it do its work. The Mini Robotic Printer then uses its omni-wheel system to accurately turn and move over the paper, while the built-in printhead puts content onto the paper. The printer connects to your device via Bluetooth and comes with a rechargeable battery that lasts for over one hour per full charge. The inkjet lasts for over 1,000 printed pages and the printer takes about 40 seconds to print out an A4 page.
