A water-powered printer seems like the best idea for a printer since the 3D printing craze came along. This printer will allow for printer users to get rid of their conventional printer ink in favor of a much cheaper alternative.

Sean Zhang of Jilin University and his team of researchers have come up with a way to print legibly with just water. Ink often ends up being the thing that makes printers cost more in the end as the cost of constantly having to refill ends up outweighing the actual cot of the printer itself.

The researches have taken their own look at the costs compared beside each other and the results are surprising. The water-based ink ends up costing %1 of what the ink ends up costing. So turn on the tap and save some money with a water-powered printer.
