The HP Sprocket pocket photo printer looks to enable users to bring a functional printer with them virtually wherever they go. Sized to be even smaller than a smartphone, the HP Sprocket is capable of printing individual photos that can be shared with friends and printed at get-togethers rather than just shared on social media.
The HP Sprocket printer works thanks to the HP ZINK photo paper that packs magical power within each paper-thin design. The paper requires no cartridges to print, but rather have all the various colors required embedded into the paper itself. This allows the HP Sprocket pocket photo printer to operate without the need for a physical cartridge and thus making the smartphone peripheral inherently more portable.
