For an industry that is ancient by tech standards, true innovations are few and far between. But if university student Mugi Yamamoto has a say, our future printers could look very very different! He has invented a printer that sits atop a pile of paper and simply “eats” it way down the stack, while putting the printed pages on top. The idea is so far out that it took us quite a while to figure out how this thing actually works. Read more here about how this printer actually works.

Toshiba recently announced the much awaited e-STUDIO306LP/ RD30 multifunction product (MFP).

 

This takes recycling paper to a whole new level. Imagine being able to print on the same sheet of paper over and over again by simply erasing what was printed previously on the paper!

 

While toner erasing technology has existed for years, it worked only on prints made with special, very expensive paper. Toshiba has introduces a new printer that makes toner erasing technology available on standard copier paper print-outs.

We talk about saving paper and ink as a means to bring down the cost of printing. Well, there is another approach, especially for large organizations. Cut the number of printers instead.

This is exactly what Bucks County in the UK did. Read about how they did this and the thousands of dollars they saved here.

If you don’t already know, you should. Printer ink is, ounce for ounce, perhaps the most expensive liquid on the planet. More expensive than the best champagne and even pricier than human blood!

But is your printer wasting ink in between its printing jobs? Yes it is!

Consumer reports did an extensive test recently where they tested various printers under different duty cycles. It turns out that every printer wastes a lot of ink for its maintenance. Some more than others. The worst ones wasted as much as $120 worth of ink annually while printing nothing!

Their tips to save on this wastage? Try to bunch your print jobs together, instead of printing a few pages at a time. More importantly, keep your printer on even if you are not printing. The small amount of power that you will save by switching your printer off will be more than offset by the ink wasted during the power-on cycle.
