Eco-friendly Printing With Pencil Stubs

Mar 15, 10 Eco-friendly Printing With Pencil Stubs

This is a printer that runs completely on pencil stubs to print its documents – absolutely revolutionary with no use of ink cartridges at all. What makes this concept even more interesting is its use of an eraser to erase off the mistakes. This concept of green technology gives hope for a more sustainable future. Images after the break.

  3. Wow… but is it already in the market somewhere os it’s a mere prototype project of the idea? I think we could make good use of it here in the office! We have 5 prints and any of them are working today! lol

    Very impressive, I sure want to use lead (Pb) on my printing and attempt to poison the recipient. Where does the lead that came from the pencil anyway..?

    (Hint: an allotrope of carbon called graphite is usually found in those sticks, ie pencils)
