Tony Bannan's curator insight, August 28, 8:33 AM
 Every plastic product, even filament, starts out in pellet form. Because of this, raw pellets are readily available in thousands of different materials, colors, and grades. By printing directly with plastic pellets, David can print with many more materials than traditional 3D printers - making him useful to many more people and industries.

Xerox's Robot Printer Brings Your Documents Right To You

Xerox's Robot Printer Brings Your Documents Right To You | Heron | Scoop.it

The one advantage to the paperless office being nowhere in sight is that every time you print something you get to leave your desk and waste time while wandering over to the copy room. At least until Fuji Xerox's robot printer concept that delivers printed documents right to your desk becomes commonplace.

Thanks to an all-seeing laser LIDAR scanner perched atop the machine that creates a 3D map of a room for navigation purposes, the robot can maneuver around desks and other obstacles with ease. And to keep private documents private, it doesn't actually start printing until it arrives at the desk of whoever requested its services. So your opportunities to chat with Ted in accounting every time you need a TPS report might be numbered.
