Samsung Origami Printer Concept Wins IDEA 2013 Gold Award
The IDEA 2013 awards have been handed out and Samsung won 9 awards. Samsung got gold awards for three printer concepts. Origami is a foldable and recyclable printer made out of recycled corrugated cardboard. If the printer guts also could be made out of recycled paper it would be out of this world.
Similar to Origami, the concept of Mate, the easily customized personal printer, was also derived from a small idea the designers had in the course of their daily lives.
The screw-free assembly personal printer, Clip, was also created based on the inspiration the designers drew from their daily lives.
All three prototypes are really cool. We will see what Samsung will eventually make a real product. Watch the video below to see how the Origami printer works.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
