The future of portable printing is rolling slowly across a piece of A4 paper on a hot Thursday afternoon in Jerusalems early summer. After what seems like an eternity compared to a standard inkjet device, the prototype creates seven characters with two spaces; the end result looks like it was spit out of an aging dot matrix printer.
Its slow, Tuvia Elbaum, co-founder of Zuta Labs, says for about the third time after the printer finishes its work. And while it may be slow now, the idea driving this start-up is nonetheless engaging.
The Zuta Pocket Printer is not your typical boxy tabletop inkjet or even a miniaturized version of one. Its a robot thats a little smaller than a CD case, with four wheels and a printer cartridge currently tethered to an Arduino board.
