A Digital Camera That Magically Prints onto Any Flat Surface

Swedish Alex Breton spent 11 years and and $10 million developing the PrintBrush, a printer that lets you print onto paper by simply rubbing the handheld device across the surface. While traditional printers must move paper through a machine in order to accurately track the position of the page, the PrintBrush works more like an optical mouse, tracking the paper underneath with lasers. A camera-equipped PaintBrush is set to hit the market in early 2012, letting people everywhere print photos instantly on any flat surface!

    Funny how the video is edited so we don’t actually see the printer doing the printing.

    Can I point out that this Breton guy had $10 million to throw away and nothing better to do in the last 11 years?

    The working prototype they have can only print black and are about twice the size of that color version and it have taken them 11 years to go that ‘far’ and they think it only should take an other year to do a color version that also capture the photo… That what they said 2 years ago.

    If that thing could print upside down, then the Russians would already have wind up rechargeable upside down pencil printers… but they don’t. suggestion 2… just do a quick sketch, it will save you 11 years and $10 million.

    why so harsh?  Don’t you know that this is an incredible idea.  This is the price of new market ideas.  I think it will go far.
