The Inkless Printer

Well this is new. To make a printer as small as today’s slim cameras, engineers removed the one thing that makes printing possible: ink. Polaroid spin-off Zink instead layers dyes that initially look clear onto sheets of plastic “paper.” When its blasted by hundreds of small heaters in the print head, the dyes change color, producing a image that is water-resistant, and lats about 10 years. Zink expects two products that uses their technology to come out later this year. A $100 Bluetooth-enabled printer to go with a cellphone and a $200 camera with a built-in printer. The plastic “paper” costs about $2 for a pack of 10.
