Samsung Develops Circular Concept Printer
Samsung Electronics of Korea and the Seoul National University have designed a circular-type portable concept printer that responds to a need for business travelers. Using rotational, instead of linear, movement to obtain a truly portable design, printer size is reduced by one-third. The device is light and compact, slim, with rounded lines and is portable.
"This is a fresh and novel design solution to the long standing pursuit of printing anywhere, anytime. Focusing on making the printer compact and portable also broadens the possibilities for where printer technology can or should be pushed. This truly provokes, challenges, and sparks the imagination; a revolutionary design…literally,” said Christopher Alviar of the Industrial Designers Society of America.
