Ping Pong Ball Printer

Do away with all that flat print media. Sphere’s are where it’s at!
Though I’m guessing it will be a while before you can read a “news-ball” over morning coffee – These guys have a pretty intricate setup going on, incorporating an EFX-TEK prop automation board and Parallax serial inkjet printhead. [via]-Link

Strange, the item title on Parallax’s site reads “96 dpi Serial Inkjet Printer Kit – End of Life” I never knew they were so concerned about their customer’s social well being(?)

    That’s really awesome! The morning news-ball idea reminds me of Minority Report.
