Here's my tech startup idea:
A printer that actually works
No one, to my knowledge, has tried to invent this yet
Killer app for this printer:
Printing a document as expected
@bgcarlisle You're on a streak here, hahaha
@bgcarlisle I've got used to 3d printers so the 2d ones now seem well-behaved by comparison.
@anne Oh no D:
@bgcarlisle ok so…
hear me out
i know this might preposterous, if not straight up made up, but i, a computer programmer, own a printer that actually… prints
wanna know my secret?
@bgcarlisle best part of my short tenure at a professional printer's was the surprise that professional grade digital presses act up just as much as office printers!
@acdw So you're saying there's a market for: A functioning printer??
@bgcarlisle oh yes, if you could make one you'd current the market
@bgcarlisle *corner wow just noticed that typo
@bgcarlisle Would it support Internet Printing Protocol? Would I be able to just plug it in and use it right away?
@c0debabe It's slow
I'll take one Printey Boy, and hold the surprises!
@c0debabe It doesn't put secret codes on your papers so they can be traced
It is made from all replaceable and many 3D-printable parts
The ink is something non-proprietary that can be got from like a bulk food store or something
