Israel-based Zuta Labs is the company behind the unique product. They say it brings a much-needed revolution to the printing industry.
And now they’re looking for funding via Kickstarter to bring their product to market in early 2015.
‘Print machines nowadays are essentially a printhead running left and right on a moving piece of paper,’ they write on Kickstarter.
‘We asked ourselves, why not get rid of the entire device, just put the printhead on a set of small wheels and let it run across a piece of paper.
‘By doing so, we allow the printer to really be as little as possible. ‘

The mini printer has a rechargeable battery and can connect with smartphones and PCs.
It also allows the user to print on any size of paper.
The device works by using a sliding hatch underneath.
When the printer is activated, this reveals the inkjet.
Wheels then move the robot across paper, printing out whatever is required as it goes.
An omni-wheel system enables the printer to turn and drive accurately in any direction.
To print something, a user merely needs to send their request to the device via Bluetooth.
The device itself, made of polycarbonate, will come in either black or white.
Dimensions: 4 inches (10 cm) high and 4.5 inches (11.5 cm) in diameter.
Weight: About 300 grams (0.66 pounds)
Print Speed: 1.2 pages per minute.
Print Quality: 96x192 dpi (and eventually higher)
Ink: One black cartridge.
Connectivity: Wireless.
Interface: Bluetooth
Battery: 1 hour.
Operating system: Android, IOS, Linux, OSX, Windows.
