Fuji's new Pokémon-themed mobile printer is a nostalgic Nintendo Switch accessory and I love it

Fuji's new Pokémon-themed mobile printer is a nostalgic Nintendo Switch accessory and I love it

Nostalgia is a powerful thing, and savvy legacy companies know how to capitalize on it. Nintendo and Fujifilm, two such companies with more than 200 years of combined history, have teamed up to create the ultimate nostalgia trap: an adorable Pokémon-themed instant photo printer. It connects to your phone to pop out tiny prints of your favorite photos — or, using a special app, Nintendo Switch screenshots.

Released in conjunction with New Pokémon Snap, this special edition Instax Mini Link is meant to evoke the feeling of printing out your favorite critter snaps at Blockbuster, a millennial rite of passage. It's not cheap, but it's a ton of fun — especially if you've got little ones of your own to share it with.

Motorola Introduces MotoPrint - An App That Allows You To Print From Your Phone

Motorola Introduces MotoPrint - An App That Allows You To Print From Your Phone

At CTIA, Motorola recently demonstrated a new feature for Motorola Android phones called MotoPrint. The feature allows users to print documents from their phones to a supposedly "wide range" of printers.

MotoPrint, while still in beta, is able to print PDFs, Microsoft Office documents, and certain graphics via your local network printer.

HP Zeen Android Tablet Spotted In The Wild, Printer Inexplicably Paired With It

I thought one of the driving tenets of the tablet revolution was to obsolete printers, but obviously HP disagrees – hey, they’re the experts. The Zeen, as it’s appellated, is a 7-inch capacitive tablet which will be bundled in a $400 package with the C510 PhotoSmart eStation. While thankfully printing does not appear to be the Zeen’s sole raison d’être, it is certainly one of the devices included features, with a Printer and Coupon app appearing in the app drawer.
