Rechargink, a soda fountain dispenser for inkjet cartridges
Who wouldn't love a really convenient and easy way to refill those annoying empty inkjet cartridges, besides every printer company ever? With that in mind, KIS/Photo-Me is displaying its new "Rechargink" system at the Photokina exhibition in Germany this week, which is great news for consumers and retailers and terrible blow to HP, Canon, and friends. The Rechargink is basically like a soda fountain dispenser, but for ink, based on what we can tell from this photo -- apparently you belly up to the kiosk with your empty container, pull down the lever, and then you have a functioning ink cartridge again within five minutes. No word on price nor availability, nor on what happens if you try to make a suicide soda version of ink, either.
