In designing and prototyping electronic circuit boards there is no quick or simple way to produce results. Many hours of design and development need to be expended on prototype layouts along with masking, etching, and populating those boards with components. Even after all of this, just one simple layout mistake can ruin all of your work and you have to go through the entire process again. The Voltera V-One aims to change all of that with the promise of a one button, conductive ink printing system solely designed to reduce the effort in rapid, small run hardware prototyping.  Read More

The Instagram logo-inspired Socialmatic from Polaroid

Polaroid has been teasing us with the release of its Socialmatic camera for a while now, and after some delays it is finally shipping. We got our hands on the company's big square Android-based digital camera with built-in zero-ink printer at CES 2015 and can also confirm it actually works as advertised.  Read More

The Voxel8 3D printer can blend plastics and electronics in the same printed object

The 3D printers of today can produce objects that may be quite intricate in shape but, by and large, these objects are still made solely of "dumb" plastic. This may be about to change thanks to the Voxel8, a printer presented at CES that makes it much easier to blend plastic, conductive ink and other electronic components in the same object to manufacture highly customizable devices, such as your very own quadcopter.  Read More

The Polaroid Zip is a new wireless mobile printer

Sharing photos on social media is fun, but it's still nice to have printed copies of our favorite shots. A new mobile photo printer from Polaroid lets users print out photos that they have taken on their smartphones. The Polaroid Zip produces small color prints in around a minute.  Read More

Primera Trio sells for US$399.95 and is available for pre-order in selected stores worldwi...

Unless you add "3D" to the mix, printers aren't often worth getting very excited about nowadays, but printer manufacturer Primera Technology has revealed what it reckons is the world's smallest and lightest all-in-one printer at this year's CES. The Primera Trio weighs 1.2 kg (2.7 lbs), is compared by the firm to the size of a hardcover book, and can run from an optional battery pack.  Read More

ImageTech aims to make printing from a smartphone or tablet possible on legacy printers, w...

Having a printer that can accept documents from a smartphone or tablet is great, but unfortunately, there are still a lot of legacy printers out there that can't print without wires. That's the problem that ImageTech is aiming to solve with its printWiFi and printUSB devices.  Read More

The Polaroid Socialmatic camera is scheduled for release in late 2014/early 2015

ADR Studio first revealed the Socialmatic concept design back in 2012. A year later Polaroid announced that the chunky photo sharing and printing camera would hit stores by the close of 2014. When Gizmag visited the company's booth at Photokina, that shipping target looks to have been refined again, with a possible "in time for the holidays" window being replaced by a probable Q1 2015 release.  Read More

Purdue's prototype machine prints the exact doses of medication a patient requires (Photo:...

It can be tricky to take exactly one fourths of a pill or the specific dose of prescribed medication, which is why researchers at Purdue University have come up with a way to print the proper dosage that a patient requires. Their prototype uses inkjet printing technology and a predictive mathematical model that calculates exactly how much medicine the patients needs and prints out the precise doses into tablets or films.  Read More

A new cell-printing technique similar to the ancient art of block printing could see the c...

Researchers in Houston have developed a cost effective method for printing living cells, claiming almost a 100 percent survival rate. The method, which is akin to a modern version of ancient Chinese wood block printing, allow cells to be printed on any surface and in virtually any two dimensional shape. And while current inkjet printers adapted to print living cells can cost upwards of US$10,000 with a cell survival rate of around 50 percent, this simple new technique could see the cell stamps produced for around $1.  Read More

Israeli artist Liat Segal has created a device that uses light to print fading messages onto photosensitive paper. The Confession Machine uses ultraviolet (UV) LEDs that are programmed to switch on and off at certain intervals in order to print people's confessions onto paper coated with a UV sensitive pigment. Then they disappear.  Read More
