Mobile printers are getting smaller and the latest to join the bandwagon is mPrinter — a small, portable thermal printer developed by Andy Muldowney.
Like other awesome devices emerging in the recent months, mPrinter is a project initially introduced in Kickstarter. But because of its promising features, Muldowney’s original $10,000 goal has now reached $88,000.
In an interview with Mashable, Muldowney shares that his inspiration for mPrinter’s design stems from his vision to create a printer that “will be used for both commercial and consumer uses,” plus “it had to look at home on a kitchen counter as well as the checkout line.”
Some examples of what the device can print include shopping list, weather, streaming stock data, news alerts, medication reminders, task lists, crosswords, coupons and other snippets of information.
According to the Kickstarter info, the mPrinter supports iOS application for iPhone, iPods, and iPads, but Muldowney and his team have plans of developing Android version. They intend to start shipping around February.
