Inkless portable printer

Polaroid is continuing its return to the consumer market with an upcoming portable printer, made by a spinoff subsidiary called Zink. Like the cameras that made Polaroid famous, the printer will not require any ink of its own; users will instead need to buy special Zink paper, which contains dye crystals that only activate at the right temperature. The printer should be roughly the same size as an iPod and will connect via USB or Bluetooth, enabling cellphones and other portable devices to print directly. No timeframe for a release has been set, but Polaroid is hoping to keep the cost under $100. [Via The Next Big Thing]
