Printer ink is a problem for most but with this concept printer, perhaps people can get their documents printed the green way without such a worry. Designed by Hosung Jung, Junsang Kim, Seungin Lee and Yonggu Do, the Tanning printer should be a great solar-powered printer that can get some images and text printed on paper any time.
All this is done using the sun’s rays where it burns the image or text onto the paper, dark enough to show up without compromising the paper’s integrity. The printer has solar panels to collect the energy for all the printing and power needs it will need.
The designers make a compelling case for why we need a printer like this in our lives, pointing out that nearly 70 percent of all printed documents involve white paper and black in.
