Ročni tiskalnik, ki tiska na les in umetne materiale

Lexmark in Xyron sta napovedala prihod prvega mini tiskalnika, ki tiska neposredno na najrazličnejše materiale. Namenjen je predvsem domačim ustvarjalcem in kreativnim uporabnikom, ki želijo polepšati svoje domače stvaritve. Izdelek, ki so ga poimenovali Xyron Design Runner, je rezultat skupnega partnerstva Xyrona in Lexmarka in je prvi tovrstni izdelek na svetovnem trgu, ki bo zapolnil vrzel med digitalnim in ročnim okraševanjem doma narejenih izdelkov. Gre za brezžični, prenosni mini ročni tiskalnik, ki uporabniku omogoča tiskanje neposredno na najrazličnejše materiale – na tekstil, les, umetne materiale, tapete ali druge materiale z ravnimi površinami. Zadošča že en sam pritisk na gumb in na površini se pojavi katerikoli izmed izbranih, vnaprej pripravljenih vzorcev. (aNET)
