Solar Tanning Printer

Solar Tanning Printer


Ink cartridges are expensive to constantly restock as well as a hassle to change. Printing is only done at offices or homes and not readily available anywhere. Traditional printers require a connection to an electric power source through a plug.


The Solar Tanning Printer is an inkless solar powered printer. This eliminates the need for an electric connection making it portable as opposed to an office or home appliance. Furthermore, since it is inkless and relies on a solar powered tanning mechanism to burn the text onto paper, it completely nullifies the need to purchase ink cartridges which significantly reduces the cost of operating a printer. This tanning mechanism uses a refraction glass to capture sunlight and focus it onto a thermal coil which tans the paper with the desired text.
