As we all know, printing especially on a deadline can be frustrating. First, you have to find a printer with the paper you need that’s close to you. Then there is the issue of multiple people using the same printer, which can take up a lot of time, and ink, and paper. One solution is to get your own printer, but if something needs to be printed in an emergency, you are out of luck. If only there was a way to have a personal printer that you could have with you all the time, well with the ZUtA pocket printer there is. Here is a short video demonstrating the product. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4ba5ommDa4
The printer has a 10.2cm diameter and weighs 350 grammes. As you have seen, it is wireless and utilises a micro-USB connection to charge. As with anything wireless, we must know the battery life, this happens to be one hour, which with a speed of one page per minute, means at best you will get sixty pages off of one charge. The print quality is the standard 300 dpi, and the ZUtA comes with one ink cartridge, which is about a hundred pages, but this amount is still being tested. Sadly, at this moment in time, the ZUtA can only print in black and white, but it is incredibly likely that colour printing will come in the upcoming years.
As the above video is only a teaser, you may be wondering how do you start printing, well these are the steps you will take. Firstly you will turn the device on, then you will align the printer with the top corner of what you want to print on. Now you have a choice, you can either use the “print” button on the product or download the mobile app on your smartphone and print from there. To work with multiple pages, just re-align it to the top corner of the new page, and print using your desired option.
