Ink is so yesterday!

February 28, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

How amazing is technology? Now, there is such a thing as inkless technology.

ZINK™ stands for Zero Ink™ and may signal a future where ink cartridges may become obsolete – in other words – SO YESTERDAY.

To quote:

At the heart of the ZINK Technology is the patented ZINK Paper, an advanced composite material with cyan, yellow, and magenta dye crystals embedded inside, and a protective polymer overcoat layer outside. The crystals are colorless before printing, so ZINK Paper looks like regular white photo paper. Heat from a ZINK-enabled device activates the crystals, forming all the colors of the rainbow. The printing process is now radically simple. Just add ZINK Paper™.

Isn’t that just freakin’ cool?


I’m really excited about the Polaroid PoGo™ Instant Digital Camera / ZINK™ Printer.

It’s a freakin’ fully-featured digital camera with a built-in instant printer! Talk about having your cake and eating it too. All you have to do is take pictures the normal way, and then just print the pics in less than 60 seconds as 2×3-inch, peel-off, sticky-backed photos.
