Toy Fair: Printies emerge from the inkjet womb

printies.jpg

Printies are sheets of pre-sewn fabric ready to be stamped with any design you create or download, using a standard inkjet printer. Just print, stuff and go: manufacturer Techno Source claims it uses no more ink than paper.

They’ll be offered in six different shapes from fall 2009, with each set costing under $20. You can already start planning your conquests at the official MyPrinties website.

    Hm. That MyPrinties link is not working.

    It *can’t* use more ink than paper, because the ink emission is controlled by the printer, not the media.

    All it can do is require a second pass through the printer to look up-to-snuff, in which case you’re enabling it to use more ink.

    I must admit that this post was much more interesting/creepier when I thought the headline read:

    that’s actually really neat. Now all they need to do is market an “adult” version shaped like boobs and wieners and you’ve got *the* hot toy for this holiday season.

    Well, some media asks for more ink than others from a printer. In the Print Settings where you choose the type of paper? The biggest change that makes is the amount of ink the printer puts down.

    All kinds of dirty things being printed on a doll are coming up soon, I’m sure. I couldn’t help but see something dirty in the example doll. It’s a product purpose made for the filthy mind.

    Well, that and kids. And scrapbookers.
