Wireless, Inkless Printers

I just noticed these wireless and inkless printers on Gizmodo.
And they’re even pretty. This is a Dell Wasabi. Another option is the Zink Pocket Printer.
At first I didn’t see a library application but then I thought again.
With the demise of Polaroid photos, this is a good option. You can quickly print photos for the bulletin board for Mom & Tots storytime, members of the Summer Reading Club or Wii Fit Group etc. It’ll even work with anyone’s phone at an event, parade, fair or party.
People love seeing pictures of themsleves in public places. It’s a user engagement strategy. And you’ve still got a digital copy for the website.
And these printers are only $100-149.00 which seems cheap enough for me to try one as soon as I find it.
Any libraries out there using this?
