Between Kickstarter’s frauds and phenoms live long-delayed projects
In my view, consumer printers are hulking and inscrutable plastic machines, worse to look at than to use. When industrial design students need to be punished, they have to sit alone in a room with one. So a year ago, I got excited about a new Kickstarter project that promised to change the printing design paradigm. Zuta Labs' printer looked like a tiny marvel: a little machine the size of a large apple that walked across pieces of paper, leaving ink footprints.
