Israeli Start-Up Invents Pocket-Sized Printer (VIDEO)
ZUtA Labs, an Israeli start-up, has created a pocket-sized printer to help denizens of the mobile economy print their memos and presentations on the go, according to the company’s founders.
Featured at Microsoft’s prestigious ThinkNext event and funded over Kickstarter, the 4-inch-long device is basically a printer head in the middle of two opposing sets of wheels, which allow it to print across and then down a page. The ZUtA Pocket Printer will be part of a full range of micro-printers on the market by January, 2015, the company said.
The idea came from classmates Matan Caspi and Tuvia Elbaum at the Jerusalem College of Technology, which provided the initial funding for their prototype.
