Everything around us is becoming portable and mobile. Wireless is no longer a buzzword. It has become a norm. And being compact or portable is no longer a unique selling point. They have become the bare minimum requirements for a product to be considered desirable. In all this evolution and change, some devices have been left out. While many things have become portable and mobile, the good old printer is still a large device which is stationed at one place and certainly cannot be moved around much. Even if you consider the sleek mean printing machines which can look no bigger than a laptop, they too are not portable enough.

Thus comes the Mini Mobile Robotic Printer from ZutA Labs. It is a portable printer which is no bigger than a box of diamond earrings. Now, you can print on the move, no matter where you are and what you have with you. The Mini Mobile Robotic Printer can be hooked up with all popular laptops, desktops, smart phones and tablets. You may even hook other devices that have wireless connectivity and can integrate the print function or already has it supported by the software.

The Mini Mobile Robotic Printer can be carried in a bag, if your trousers have large or medium sized pockets then the printer can be tossed into your pocket as well and you may also keep the printer in your car, somewhere in the glove compartment. The printer also uses a new technology that allows it to move across a paper, of any size, on which something has to be printed. This saves time and space. The printer will not move from left to right and linearly across the page to print something that doesn’t need such a movement. This motion is also what makes the printer small as the lateral movement of conventional printers would compel the size to be as large or as wide as the width of the paper that has to be printed upon.

The Mini Mobile Robotic Printer can be activated by sliding the hatch at the bottom. IT has a USB port for charging. The inkjet would run for a thousand pages and the battery would power the printer for an hour after being fully charged up.

As of now, the printer doesn’t have a stabilizing sensor which is possibly its only shortcoming.
