Memjet is showing off a blazing fast inkjet printer at CES 2011. The company has designed a printer with a single printhead that is the width of the paper tray, it utilizes more than 70,000 color jets to ink a page and is capable of printing a whopping 70 pages per minute! The company is working together with various companies to commercialize the technology but it's still unknown when these printers will be available in retail stores.
Why should you care about Memjet? Because most of the big announcements coming from printer companies in recent years have revolved around advances in printer communication and broadened functionality. It isn't often that a disruptive technology comes along and results in a different kind of printer.
That's what Memjet is showing at CES, an inkjet printer that is capable of between 60 and 70 pages per minute because of its unique printhead design.
