Researchers create a 1,000 page-per-minute printer
inkjet printer dubbed the JeTrix, which they hope will be to the inkjet printer what the ink-jet was to dot-matrix devices. Moshe Einat, one of the engineers involved, described his invention as being "like an 'ink-emitting screen,'" in the sense that ink would flow point by point -- and all at once -- instead of waiting for the cartridge to fully scan line by line -- theoretically reaching a speed of 1,000 pages in a single minute. Einat says that the printer should begin commercial production within two years, but don't expect them to come as freebies with your PC purchase anytime soon.
