Eco-Friendly Printer RiTi Suggests Coffee And Tea Instead Of Ink

The concept of the RiTi printer goes further than that. It does not require a power source for the actual printing process which is also something that traditional printers require. The printout is created by moving the ink case left and right manually. This obviously means that this method is not suited for printing out many papers at once.

Users who work regularly with printers might not be inclined to give that new printer concept a try as it opens a can of questions and possible problems:

  • It is not practicable to print many documents
  • The quality of the printout differs
  • Only black and white printouts
  • Coffee or tea dregs required to print

The RiTi printer could on the other hand prove to be the printer of choice for environmentally interested users who do occasional printouts.
