The device appears to be around the size of a hard disk (dimensions are 2.8 x 4.7 x 0.9), and uses Zero Ink (ZINK) technology to allow you to print full color photos without the need of ink cartridges or ribbons. It’s actually a really cool concept, and you can learn more about ZINK technology on the official website here.
At 170 dollars a pop, I can’t imagine this becoming incredibly popular just yet, but that could certainly change in a few years when they find ways of making the printer smaller and at a lower cost. As you can see from the demo video below, it seems to print pretty well, and I could imagine that there are plenty of people out there that could have use for such a device.
The Pocket Photo is set to be released in Korea soon, but we don’t have information on a US or European release date just yet.
You can view the printer in action in the video below (Vimeo link here):
Kind of cool right?
