The printer has gone unchanged since we as a society abandoned the dot matrix for the ink jet...and that's a few years ago. Since then, they way we interact with and use our devices has evolved, and the lowly printer is failing to keep up. The people behind the SWYP (See What You Print), the design consultancy from Seattle that is Artefact, see the need to evolve and improve and therefore give us the slick piece of kit shown above. Wireless connectivity to your camera or smartphone, customizable interface, blah, blah, blah. We could go into a long explanation for why the SWYP is better than your inkjet, but the video above does a far better job of explaining why we want this. So far, only a concept, but here's hoping. You can learn more here.
