The PrintBrush 4×6, which incorporates a digital camera into a handheld printer that you manually swipe across any flat surface like paper, wood and fabrics to print an image, could be hitting the market as early as 2011/2012. As the PrintBrush is swiped across a flat surface, the data is translated into ink droplets, one of 16 million shades, that are laid down on a surface allowing you to swipe it in any direction to get a printed image. Its built-in digital camera has a resolution of 5 megapixels, and the PrintBrush printhead is capable of producing a 4×6-inch full color image at 600dpi. Designed by swedish engineer Alex Breton for his company Printdreams this 8.8-ounce handheld colour printer therefore will be the next big hype. www.printdreams.com
