I’m a fan of all those 3d printers that are being financed on kickstarter and other community funding projects, but they arouse a weird suspicion in me that we’re missing a greater opportunity. A normal printer. An ecologically sound, recyclable and longevity-driven printer. Like, one that spits ink on paper. I suspect the challenge is in the logistics of ink supply, and imagine something that allows people to refill cartridges themselves, or a retanking type method.
But there are certainly a huge amount of people who are fed up with the rigged things we have now, set to deconstruct according to some corporation’s idea of a product cycle and designed to avoid any sort of interaction with free market mechanics – like a ink cartridge standard.
Anyone know of one?
