This robot printer runs around the page laying down ink

Most pocket-sized printers are really shrunken versions of what you'd see on your desk. Rather boring, don't you think? Zuta Labs' upcoming Pocket Printer robot may liven things up a little. Instead of using an old-fashioned paper feed, it runs over the page laying grayscale ink. This Roomba-like approach isn't just a party trick, though. Besides leading to a very portable design, it lets you print on any size page you like -- if you need to get a legal form while you're at the coffee shop, you can.

Zuta Labs is crowdfunding the printer to get it off the ground. If you're interested, you can pledge $180 to reserve an early bird unit; it will cost you $200 if you're late to the party. The Pocket Printer won't ship until January if it makes its funding target, but patience may be a virtue if you want a printer that doesn't sit still.
