Xerox launches solid-ink color printer

Posted in Printers by Conner Flynn on May 7th, 2009

Xerox launches solid-ink color printerXerox’s new ColorQube printer promises to revolutionize color-printing using a wax ink. The ink can reduce the cost per page by as much as 62%. This new ink doesn’t sacrifice any printer functions either. Like other multi-function printers, the ColorQube can print, copy, scan and fax and be networked by several people.

So how does it work? The ink is melted and sprayed onto a spinning drum which deposits it on the page. Don’t get too excited. The machine costs $20,000. But as the technology progresses it will get cheaper over time. And even at that price huge companies could see a long term savings in cost.

NILO Nail Fashion Printer

Posted in Printers by Conner Flynn on May 3rd, 2009

NILO Nail Fashion Printer We reported on a nail printer previously, of the Barbie variety. Apparently this is the new hot thing. I wouldn’t know myself since I’m not a girl, goth or anyone else who paints their nails. But hey why not, we have printers for everything else.

Nilo is apparently all about “Nail Fashion”. And having taken years to perfect their nail printing devices, they are now ready to sell them to you so you can start your own business etc. The printers will run you from $2,999.00 for the standard all the way up to $3,544.00 for their deluxe printing kit.

Printer uses old coffee grounds for Ink

Posted in Printers by Conner Flynn on February 2nd, 2009

Printer uses old coffee grounds for InkIt doesn’t matter if you use your printer a little or a lot, we all still hate paying ridiculous prices for ink. But what if you could use old coffee grounds instead? That would beat the price of ink. It may sound crazy, but one day, who knows? Starbucks could resell their grounds for you to take home and put in your printer.(At a high price just like their coffee I’m sure.)

It’s a just a dreamy concept right now, but with the RITI coffee printer, you could drink your coffee and print with it too. The spent grounds would be poured into a cartridge and the printing mechanism would be moved back and forth by hand to create the image. I like the idea, but could do without the manual labor part. On the plus side, your resume might be judged by the aromatic quality of your spent coffee.

UPS goes label free with new printer

Posted in Printers by Conner Flynn on November 13th, 2008

UPS goes label free with new printerThis thing may look like an X-Man accessory or strange sci-fi gun that straps on your arm and sucks your precious lifeforce with every round it fires, but no, as cool as that would be, it’s just something UPS is using so they can get all label-free. It’s HP’s Handheld sp400 All-in-One, which scans barcodes and prints sorting info directly onto boxes with quick-drying ink. No paper labels are required at all. UPS has been testing it out at a shipping center in Orlando, where they reportedly used it on 40,000 boxes with not a single error. Of course there was that one guy they pants in order to tattoo his butt cheeks, but that doesn’t count.

This device alone will make the company much greener. It will replace several larger, less green pieces of equipment like a giant thermal printer, PC, monitor and scanner. According to UPS the company will save 92,456 hours, 1,338 tons of paper and 3,807 tons of carbon emissions a year. That’s pretty big.

Objet Alaris 30 Desktop 3D PrinterHave you ever wished you had a real-life replicator that can actually create 3D objects from nothing? Like the Star Trek Replicator? It’s here. Actually 3D printers have been around for awhile, but are just now getting small enough to fit onto your desk.

According to Objet, the Alaris 30 Desktop 3D Printer will give you 36 hours of unattended printing from your 3D CAD files. No word on pricing or availability.
