I was reading my monthly dose of Scientific American when I came across a little snippet about Memjet. Apparently, a bunch of Aussies thought that having a printer head on a sled that runs back and forth a piece of paper was a decidedly inefficient way to print. So instead, they came up with a print head that spans the whole width of a sheet of paper, and altered some aspects of the physical ink dispersal mechanism.
The result? How’s 1 second for an 8×10 print sound to you from a 1600 dpi printer?
Commercial printers are allegedly forthcoming in 2008….
