On October 24th I was invited to the new product presentation of  Konica Minolta in Barcelona.

At the end of the introductory session we were had a pleasant surprise: a session of African drums led by 3 Africans and followed by all the assistants. It was really fun to see a all the executives and middle-aged men dressed in suits and ties playing the drum like crazy. (In the end I attach a video)

The novelty is that Konica’s professional printing services can now offer embossed prints without requiring large quantities, that is, starting from one unit.

It is a web environment from which an employee of a large company or institution can order business cards, brochures, bookbinders, etc. It is an internal virtual store. It allows a flow of approval of costs by the superior and an exact control of the work done by the reproduction center.

A team of entrepreneurs from Israel started up this new concept of printer. Kind of a mini “Roomba” robot that prints in any paper size. Another clever idea that is looking for funds at Kickstater. You can still back the project if you like it. (200 US$)

Samsung comes out with the first NFC-capable printer

Here’s a newsflash. Smartphones are super popular.

In the United States, for example, more than half the cell phone users have some sort of smartphone. (Which makes the rest of the segment stupid, I guess.) Worldwide about one in five people use a smart phone, meaning more than 1.4 billion of these gadgets are out there.

It was only a matter of time before a print company decided to smarten up as well.

Enter Samsung, which created the Samsung Printer Xpress C410/460 Series to join the smartphones at the head of the class.

Tapping is the way the two communicate. According to Samsung, you get an image up on your smartphone, tap the back of it to the icon resembling the smartphone and boom, out pops the image. The unit makes use of Near Field Communication, the newest, and some might say revolutionary, technical gadget to hit the printing market.

Reviewers of the Samsung printer are going gaga over the new use of NFC technology. Samsung is the first printer manufacturer to add it to their printers and reviewers say it adds a sense of simplicity to wireless printing. More info
