Cutting-edge development: the Analogue Printer
Today FSFE announced a new cutting-edge development: the Analogue Printer.
"Usually, FSFE concentrates on Free Software policy issues: we work to promote Free Software in politics, business, and law, to increase social awareness of Open Standards and acceptance by society at large. But at one point we decided to use our donations to develop this groundbreaking device", says FSFE's Fellowship Coordinator Matthias Kirschner.
The device is available in two versions:
Analogue printer, business-style pen, dark blue (€12.00).
This analogue printer is interoperable and works on every platform.
Highly hackable, it uses Open Standards and comes with a shiny box.
Analogue printer, geek-style pen, green (€5.00). This analogue
printer is interoperable and works on every platform. Highly
hackable, it uses Open Standards.
The device can print any colour, 3D, underwater, and all file formats. Since the device is analogue, there is no digital restriction management (DRM), so you can use it for any purpose.
"It was high time to provide users with a device that frees them not only from the bonds of proprietary software, but from the limitations of software in general", says Karsten Gerloff, FSFE's President. "This is a tool that will finally give you 100% direct control over your written communications, with no black boxes getting between you and your messages."
