While digital technology has made it possible to share books, music, magazines and other media on super-compact devices like phones and tablets, there’s still a certain something lacking by not being able to hand over a tangible representation of what you’d like to share. Oksu, designed by Alex Zhulin, is a digital data printer concept taps into this level of sharing by making it possible to instantly “print” a tangible copy of a song, article, link or file that can be physically shared between individuals.
No ink cartridge needed! The printer uses Z-Ink technology, where color pigments are already within the paper and only need to be activated. Also, NFC chip technology makes it possible to open the contents of the printed card simply by placing it on the device the user wishes to load it on.
