Samsung Electronics of Korea and the Seoul National University have designed a circular-type portable concept printer that responds to a real need for business travelers.
The circular printer challenged engineers to make it a reality. 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 very durable and 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. Samsung…please build this!” said Christopher Alviar, IDSA, Principal, CG/A
