This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
PrintBrush™ XDR is a first-of-its-kind color inkjet printer for smartphones. Go paperless. Go truly mobile. Save the planet. The press has called our printer a “Magic Wand for printing” and it is now in pilot production after many years of development. The product features PrintDreams’ RMPT™ technology which puts portable printing capability at the fingertips of smartphone users around the world. The imprints come out directly onto any type of surface with a simple wave of the hand.
The PrintBrush XDR is a wireless full color inkjet printer that weighs about the same as an average smartphone but can print larger imprints than its own size. This new versatile device will change the way we think about printing because, for the first time, it is now possible to print anything in full color anywhere, on almost any surface. The imprints are made simply by using a sweeping action, just swapping the printer’s direction from left to right or right to left, directly on any surface, be it paper, cardboard, fabrics, wood, etc.
When you consider that over 100 million desktop printers are manufactured every year, our technology has the potential to save hundreds of thousands of tons of steel and plastic, to say nothing of saving huge amounts of energy during manufacturing and usage. Users also have the potential of saving a few trees since they can go paperless and start printing on re-usable substrates such as whiteboards!
As of January 15th, this project has raised $215,000 of their $503,658 goal. This project has 16 days left to raise the $503,658 or it will not be funded. For a pledge of $10, you will get their Android app. For a pledge of $242, you will get one PrintBrush XDR.
