Epson has announced two new printers that are aimed at families and photo enthusiasts. The new printers include the Epson Expression Premium XP-810 and XP-610 Small-in-One. Both printers use Epson's MicroPiezo printing technology and Claria Premium ink allowing high-quality photos to be printed at home.
Being able to print out photographs, e-mails, and other documents is something that we take pretty much for granted. This task has been easily accomplished from your computer for decades. However, it can be much more difficult to print out photos and other documents from your smartphone without having to share what you want to print the computer via e-mail or other methods.
Canon has introduced two new wireless printers, the PIXMA MG7120 and the PIXMA MG5520. Both printers allow users to access documents in the cloud and print directly from various online services, among them being Photobucket, Picasa, and Dropbox. Both printers are compatible with the new PIXMA Printing Solutions app available for Android and iOS with Cloud Link credentials.
There are a lot of printers out there in all sorts of price ranges, designs and features as numerous as any other gadget, yet none of them are quite like Samsung's Origami concept - made of cardboard. The design was made as part of the 2013 International Design Excellence Awards, and was accompanied by two other designs featuring other shells.
It's time to connect to a printer again, this time in a very miniature way with the LG Pocket Photo and the Optimus G Pro for good measure! The LG Pocket Photo is a pocketable printing machine that'll print out tiny 2 by 3-inch photos created with a special process that uses no ink - like magic! The coolest bit about this printer may be the way you connect with it - all you need to do is tap your NFC-laden smartphone to the printer (with the apropriate app open, of course), and your photo will print in right around 30 seconds.
MakerBot has made a name for themselves recently with their line of 3D printers. Today, the company is at CES 2013 showing off their new experimental 3D printer known as the Replicator 2X, which is the successor to the Replicator 2. What's most impressive about this new model, is that it has two printing heads. We ended up stopping by the crowded booth to get a look at the new printer.
Canon saw operating profit slump over 42-percent year-on-year, and net income fall by more than a third, according to the camera company's Q3 2013 financial results, citing continued low demand. Net sales reached ¥799.9 billion ($10.3m) in the three month period, Canon reported [pdf link], down 12.8-percent compared to the same quarter in 2011, and while it has been attempting to scythe away at costs, it still saw gross profit ratio dip 1.1-percent.
Hammacher Schlemmer is a company that sells some very odd products that also tend to be quite expensive. The company has unveiled a new electronic product designed to go along with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch or Android devices to print all those photos you take with your smartphone. The product is called the Wireless Smartphone Photo Printer.
Business cards are boring, even if you slot NFC inside them, but the swish business fellow around town could change all that with a home-made hologram card. Pioneer Corporation's idea of what construes a "compact" hologram printer might not exactly tally with ours - it's roughly the size of a large briefcase - but considering you're getting the ability to make your own full-color holograms we could probably forgive the discrepancy.
MakerBot Industries has unveiled a brand-new desktop 3-D printer that the company claims is the easiest, fastest, and most affordable tool yet for constructing 3-D models. The new printer is called the MakerBot Replicator 2 and is aimed at engineers, researchers, creative professionals, and anyone else who likes to make 3-D models.
