This Portable Robot Lets You Print Anywhere

For better or worse, we still live in a world that requires actual hard copies of stuff. And if you've ever been on the road and stuck without a printer, you know the terror of the hotel "business center." The Mini Mobile Robotic Printer is both adorable AND functional, and will allow you to become your own mobile business center.

Through a system of wheels, ink jets, and possibly fairies, the mini-printer connects to your smartphone or laptop and simply rolls along on a piece of paper, instantly laying down typeface or designs.

The printer comes in three colors and is small enough for a briefcase, backpack, or bigger-than-average pocket. It's rolling toward it's Kickstarter goal, but you can get one of the first off the line for around $200. A small price if it means never having to desperately search for a Kinkos again.
