EnerGenie ePP2 E-paper Printer Never Runs out of E-ink

by Lambert Varias

Many programs provide an option to save or “print” documents as PDF files, but transferring or accessing the PDF on the go will require a couple of extra steps. You may have to sync your tablet with your computer or cloud service, mail the document or copy it on a flash drive. EnerGenie has a simpler solution: just print on E-ink.

The EnerGenie ePP2 is a specialized ebook reader. When you connect it to a computer via USB, it will be recognized as a printer. Print as you would normally, but select the ePP2 as your printer to send your document to the device. You can then view your file on the ePP2’s 9.7″ 1600 x 1200 E-ink display. Use its stylus if you need to fill out forms, append your signature or make notes. It also has a complementary program that lets you send a document from the ePP2 back to a computer as a PDF file.

According to Liliputing, the ePP2 will be sold for around €399 to €499 (~$540 to $670 USD). Ultimately I wouldn’t recommend it at this point. It’s way too expensive , it has limited features – it doesn’t even have network connectivity – and as I said, you can go paperless with practically any tablet and a couple of extra steps. But I think the idea behind it is quite promising. Hopefully its future versions will be significantly cheaper or more versatile.
