Printer Is Officially Off The Desk

Printer Is Officially Off The Desk

We are constantly looking for creative ways to get the printer off our desk and reclaim the table space that was ours in the first place. Printer dominance on the worktable is one office woe that many face even in this day and age. The Rolling Printer puts an end to the debate by being this blissful device that hangs on the wall, giving you ample space for other important stuff like a decent coffee mug.

Disposable Printer

Disposable Printer

The Instant Cartridge Printer is an awesome idea modeled on the lines of how disposable cameras are dispensed. The plan is to buy a cartridge printer off the shelf, according to the paper size you plan on using. Related info like print speed, print resolution and color is provided on the packaging itself. The designers try and bring in an eco-angle by using recyclable paper for the milk-box packaging and recyclable parts. However the printer is powered by an internal battery & hooks to the device and comp via USB.

3D printer that's cheaper than an iPhone

3D printer that’s cheaper than an iPhone

I knew that title would grab your attention. While we’re on the subject, yes it’s true. The Tiko printer goes for $179 and apart from the highly competitive price tag, the printer boasts of a unibody design, the ability to process branded/non-branded filaments, and a new Delta technique of printing that involves the nozzle being controlled by three arms. This allows the printer to print with stunning accuracy, and faster!

Inside-out Printer

Inside-out Printer

Thanks to concept design, our perception of a printer has stretched from a circular body to over-the-edge box. The idea is to break conventional norms and do something radically different yet respecting the boundaries of ‘form beyond function’. The Eclipse-dual Printer is a step in this direction and it aims at revealing the process of printing and scanning, rather than concealing it.

Reverse Printer

Reverse Printer

Generally we buy a printer to take printouts, but here is a concept that believes in the reverse process…removing ink from the printed-paper! Akin to the idea of a dermatologist laser-burning blemishes and dark spots from your skin, the Ink Remover Printer proposes to do something similar; zap out the ink using laser technology. This way you can reuse the old memos to print new ones, recycle paper and feel good about it.

The Circle Printer

The Circle Printer

One of the most annoying computer peripheral on anyone’s desk is the printer. It’s noisy, it vibrates and it takes up so much space! Which is why I’m all for innovations that look at minimizing size without losing functionality. ‘Circle’ is one such attempt that has impressed me. One look and you won’t even realize that it’s a printer, looks more like humidifier or a fancy pot. Wish that manufacturers would look in this direction too; HP are you listening?

How Big Is Your Printer?

How Big Is Your Printer?

God forbid if you are the unlucky bloke who gets to sit on a table that houses the office printer. They are a blessing and a bane, simply because they occupy so much of space. Maybe this is why concepts like the Retractable Printer are much more appealing. Imagine a sleek device that spans out according to the size of paper you are printing. Simple thought for a practical way of working in an office! Super!

So how about this … your phone case also doubles up as a portable printer. I like the concept and logically speaking, we are seeing many new practical designs that support portable printer – scanners that are pint-sized. Taking it a step further and cramming it as a Smartphone cover is an eventuality. Just a matter of time! So we have it on paper now … let the drum rolls begin…

Yes, I realize this is not the usual “product concept” you are used to seeing here on Yanko Design, but it is an interesting way to work with nature as a replacement for your tree killing printer.

Roller Paper Printer

Roller Paper Printer

Roller printers have come a long way since the 80′s but they fell out of favor in the consumer market for being loud and slow. However they’re becoming better alternatives nowadays since the paper is cut custom to your needs.
