Stupid-fast new printer technology
If haste makes waste, the team motto at Silverbrook Research must be, "Let’s get wasted!!" Offering "a price/performance ratio that is off the charts" according to Lyra Research, the new Memjet printing technology (video) is many times faster than anything else on the market (60 pages per minute of 1600-dpi, full-color printing). Somewhere a forest groans; somewhere ink salesmen smile.
These Aussies have apparently been (quietly) going berserk filing patents over the last few years, as described in this profile of the company & founder Kia Silverbrook. The Memjet site has a bit more info on the technology. [Via Jim Pravetz]
