Zink mobile printer lets you print anywhere
Here comes what could be the next photo fad.
The Zink mobile printer lets you print business card size photos (2 in. x 3 in.) on photopaper or paper with a sticky back.
It's small enough to fit in your pocket and is conveniently inkless (the names is abbreviation of zero ink), so you don't have to worry about any mess. You can hook it up to your camera through a USB port or Bluetooth, and it's also compatible with the Pictbridge camera.
I can envision the Zink being used as a mobile Purikura (Print Club) photobooth or becoming the next big party fad, like the Polariod izone camera once was. But I can also see it being used in the design world as a tool for ideation sessions and rapid prototyping.
The Zink will be available later this year, and pricing information has not yet been posted.
