Innovation? There’s an App for that!

Prints are now available with any printer near you! The new Cloud-based printer by VentureBeats recently announced their new “Cloud Printer” app. This app provides immediate printing access to any document stored within an iOS or Android by simply scanning a printer’s QR code with the device’s camera. A direct channel is then opened for any document accessible by the intermediary device (phone, IPad, etc.) to be accessed and correctly printed by an external printer without downloads or software installations! Printers can receive and process payments for prints via the Cloud Printer app. This app has the potential to communicate with 3D printers in the same way that it currently communicates with 2D printers. This remote method would allow the general public access to 3D printers that are otherwise limited due to costly manufacturing restraints. Hold onto your phones, the future is coming!
