Kodak has unveiled its Hero series of all-in-one printers that can print from the cloud. Forget about the hassle of hooking up your computer or laptop to the printer via cable or your home WiFi. Kodak's Hero printers allow you to connect and print from any internet-enabled device, from anywhere in the world.
Epson has rolled out a new printer that will go perfectly with that space saving AIO computer you have. The new Epson printer is the NX430 and while it is an all in one printer, Epson calls the printer a small-in-one because of its small size. The machine measures in at 15.4" x 11.8" x 5.7" and it weighs 9 pounds. That makes the printer considerably smaller than other AIO printers on the market. The printer is fully featured as well.
This may be the most disturbing and gross photo I have ever seen. I can understand that some people love their pets so much that they have photos of them and treat them like kids. I get that pets mean a lot to some people. I can also understand people wanting to bury their pet in a cemetery and all that stuff. Cremating a pet is a bit off though and when you then take those ashes and use them to print a photo of your dead animal that's just plain weird.
Not long ago I talked about a 3D printer called the Solar Sinter that uses sand and solar power to print 3D objects. That was cool and all, but let's face it printing a 3D object with sand is interesting, but those objects would not taste good at all. If you want to print edible 3D shapes what you need is this 3D printer that uses chocolate as the print medium. Yum.
HP has dismissed criticisms of its TouchPad tablet - which SlashGear reviewed earlier this week - suggesting that incoming webOS updates will smooth out any rough edges and that, rather than taking on the iPad 2 in the consumer market, the company's main target is business users. "We think there’s a better opportunity for us to go after the enterprise space and those consumers that use PCs" HP VP of worldwide developer relations Richard Kerris told The Loop, going on to point out that the tablet segment is still far from saturated.
A student named Markus Kayser created an awesome project for a MA Design Products project. I hope he graduates with honors simply for the coolness of this project. Kayser created a device that can take advantage of the two unlimited resources out in the desert - sun and sand. The project is dubbed Solar Sinter and is a 3D printer powered by the sun and it uses the sand as the medium to create the objects it prints.
Printing - what in the world is SlashGear talking about printing for, that's just for graphic design and artwork, right? I say thee nay! This is totally sweet and everyone's going to love it, I'm telling you! This project involves Kobundo, a group that call the following method Trick Print, it being a method of printing which combines luminous RGB ink with regular CMYK ink in a single pass. What's this mean to the lay person? It means that instead of having to lay down CMYK colors from their cartridges first, then RGB second (something noone would do anyway,) they've figured out a method for lying down two color sets at once.
3D printers are cool devices. They use resins or other materials to make real objects like parts and other things that you can use for other tasks. For instance, 3D printers can be used to print parts of a prototype design. A guy has used his 3D printer to print something that many people need - replacement house keys. I mentioned the world's smallest 3D printer a few weeks back.
Remember the partnership between Lady Gaga and Polaroid which yielded the bizarre "Grey Label" lineup back at CES? It included a pair of sunglasses that shoots and displays photos and videos, as well as an instant camera and the GL10 Instant Mobile Printer. Well, a part of that lineup is finally ready for sale today, and no, sorry, it's not the video-capable sunglasses.
I can't say that I have ever received a text so cool that I wanted to write it on the wall. If you have thought it might be cool to print out texts to keep for posterity, and you have a big vacant wall Liat Segal has invented a crazy device that is a combination of an automated printer and a manual device you have to push along the wall by hand. The printer was inspired by the old dot matrix printers of yore, which are still used in some industries.
