Mangoslab, a company spun out from Samsungâs innovation division back in June 2016, showed off its first product today. Nemonic is a $120 thermal printer that prints on sticky notes from your phone. Thatâs right â everyoneâs favorite tool for passive-aggressively leaving notes on a colleagueâs computer monitorÂ is now weaponized with all the powers of IoT combined. Ladies and gentlemen, the future of office warfare is here.
The tiny printer comes with a companion app that means you can take photos, write notes, or use a simple graphic design feature to design your own stickable notes.
âThe printer doesnât need ink or toner,â said a spokesperson for the company at CES Unveiled. âYou buy our thermal sticky notes, and youâre ready to print.â
The cost of the proprietary notes will supposedly be on par with the cost of regular, old fashioned brand-name sticky notes that you write on with a pen.
You can print to the printer from the iOS or Android app using the printerâs Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, and thereâs a computer application as well. The tiny 4x4x3.5 inch printer also has a USB connection, in case thatâs your connectivity route of choice.
The printer will start shipping in April this year, and will initially only be available in South Korea. The price tag will be somewhere between $100 and $120, which seems a bit steep for a thermal printer of relatively limited use, but itâs undeniably a cool little product.
