Rethinking The Printer

Designer Ludwig Rensch didn’t understand why printers are so bulky and unattractive. All printer/scanners look like a boring office monster. He decided to question that in his design thesis and and created “Paper” a printer you actually want. This attractive tool can be carried around, prints in a more casual and light manor and is connected to an app for easy interface.

Another interesting thing, besides the attractive design and connected functions) is the fact that it has a limited number of features. Based on the Pareto principle, users only use 20% of the features a printer provides, less is more.

Currently this cool printer is only in its concept stage. I wonder which printer company (calling HP?) will buy this hit the market.
