Epson Japan and design firm Industrial Facility have completed a collaboration to rethink the design of portable color printers and the result is quite striking.

Epson Portale Printer Designed by Industrial Facility.

These new portable printers feature an integrated carrying handle and can run on batteries. The lid was designed to function as both a protective cover and a paper tray, and the memory card slots (which can handle 19 varieties of cards) are hidden behind the fold-out paper exit door. The printers also have built-in 2 or 2.5 inch LCD for previewing your pictures and an IR port for printing from compatible mobile devices. There’s also a Bluetooth connectivity upgrade available.

The printers are now available on the Epson Japan website under the brand name “Colorio”, models E-300, E-500 and E-700. It’s not clear if or when these printers will hit North American retailers.
