Brown University, 2001 - $18,000

Handprint was a startup company conceived by an entrepreneurial team at Brown University in conjunction with Zebra Technologies. Handprint developed portable printers unlike any currently available. The first in its line of printers, the Primo, is one of the smallest portable printers on the market, intended for use with wireless web browsing products such as cellular phones and PDAs. With the recent developments in color technologies used in flat panels, PDA screens, and cellular telephones, the demand for wireless color printing capabilities will rapidly expand in the near future.
