If there is a buzz word that truly defines who we are today, it’s “mobility.” Almost everything is becoming mobile thanks to cellphones, tablets and laptops, and with the advent of online jobs, you can even take your work literally anywhere in the world. But there is one thing that remained fixed in a single location and that is the printer. Sure, we are moving toward becoming more and more paperless but there is no denying that we still need to print on paper and when you do, we all scramble to the nearest place that we can find.
But printers need to be mobile nowadays as well, and Zuta Labs might just have the answer to that. The Zuta Pocket Printer is designed from the ground up with mobility in mind. It connects directly to your smartphone, laptop or tablet; it has a rechargeable battery with an on/off switch, and it can print of any paper size you want. It’s basically just a printer head with a set of wheels.
How does the Zuta Pocket Printer work?
You can easily activate it by moving the hatch underneath it, which also contains the inkjet which can print up to 1,000 pages–that’s generous enough considering its size. The battery, which is rechargeable using the USB connector, can last up to one hour when fully charged. With its omni-wheel system design, the printer can turn accurately to any direction resulting in a clean printing output.
About Zuta Labs:
Zuta Labs is composed of a team of student innovators who believe in doing things better than the way they are. Being students, they experienced first hand the shortcomings of the present printing technology which caused them to design their own with mobility in mind. They started the project at the Jerusalem College of Technology in the Friedberg Entrepreneurship Program. You can find more information on the Zuta Pocket Printer on Kickstarter.
