    Zuta Labs Is Making An Inkjet Printer That Rolls Free

    3D printers may be getting all the hype right now, but an Israeli hardware startup called Zuta Labs wants to inject some particles of excitement back into 2D printing — by turning the standard 2D printer box into a mobile robot that rolls across paper free-style, dropping ink like a road-surface marker inks white lines.

    LifePrint’s “App-Connected” Wireless Printer Makes Its Kickstarter Debut

    LifePrint wants to bring back the fun associated with printing out photos – something users once marveled they could do at home with store-bought printers until social media reached critical mass, offering far easier ways to share. With LifePrint, described as an “app-enabled wireless photo printer,” the idea is that photo printing could become a part of our modern mobile… Read More

    Review: Epson WorkForce Pro WP-4540 All-in-One Printer

    We’ve covered quite a bit of the Epson line and usually found the printers to be solid, respectable, and inexpensive. This latest addition to the WorkForce family, the WP-4540 is arguably all of those with a few caveats. This is a workhorse printer, designed solely to pump out as much paper as possible in an office setting. It’s quite large and heavy, and adding on the extra… Read More

  • Review: Epson 635 All-in-One Inkjet Printer

    Short Version: All-in-Ones are the merkins of the tech world: everyone needs one but no one wants to talk about them. That’s why I’m proud to lift my head high and say, unequivocally, that Epson has ironed out all of the kinks that come with this kind of printer and, in the process, built a handsome and usable device for home, office, or home office. Add in two-sided printing… Read More

  • Review: HP eStation All-In-One Printer With An Android Tablet

    Short version: part useful application of new technology, part marketing gimmick, the HP eStation is a solid all-in-one printer that uses a wireless Android-powered touchscreen tablet as its primary interface. The printer is about what you’d expect from HP these days, while the tablet presents some interesting new usability options. You certainly shouldn’t buy the eStation… Read More

  • Toner-, ink- and paperless printer (video)

    A Japanese company called Sanwa Newtec has developed a printer that works without toners, ink or (copy) paper. ThePrePeat RP-3100 is rather based on a line thermal head and special paper that’s made of PET plastic and can be reused over and over again. In other words, if you have a sheet that you don’t need any longer you can insert it back into the printer (where it gets… Read More

  • Review: Canon Color ImageClass MF8050Cn all-in-one printer

    There is a code to which a cowboy cleaves. He never shoots first, he’s always kind to ladies, and he never buys more printer than he can handle. While I can’t speak for those out on the lone prairie, I can report that the 52-pound ImageClass MF8050Cn by Canon may be the heaviest printer I’ve had in my office to date. This isn’t a printer for scrap-booking or… Read More

  • HP to merge printers and PC to bolster both

    HP’s printer division, long a cash cow, is being folded into its PC division after sales of printers and ink fell this year. Most companies broke out their printer divisions once they realized they could make a lot of money there but now that HP is beating Dell, the company may see a good reason to bring printers and PCs together.

  • Review: Epson Workforce 600 All-In-One Printer

    The last Epson printer I reviewed, the Artisan 800, was a work of art. The Workforce 600 is the art of work. See what I did there? To be clear, there is little to say about besides the speeds and feeds. A printer is a printer is a printer, no matter how printer manufacturers like to spice things up with claims of ink price or pages per second. That said, I’m fairly impressed by the… Read More
