A Portable Printer for Your Pocket

How’s this for a Kickstarter pitch: it’s like the Roomba, but it’s a printer. That’s the concept behind Zuta Labs’ Pocket Printer, a tiny device that runs across any size paper and prints grayscale images and documents from a mobile phone, tablet or laptop.

The device helps solve the challenge created by ubiquitous mobile computing devices that generally have nowhere to send a print job when it’s required. It is essentially a printhead that connects wirelessly to a mobile device.

The inkjet lasts for 1,000 printed pages, and the battery (which recharges via USB) is good for an hour.

Pledging $180 will get you the early bird discount. Once the printer ships in January, it will sell for $200, according to Zuta Labs.
