taking a page from the book of polaroid, the japanese manufacturer takara tomy has unveiled a digital camera with a built in printer. the device is named the ‘xiao’ and features a 5.0 mega pixel camera. the camera prints out a borderless photo in less than a minute and holds 20 sheets of photo paper. the device makes use of the zink printing technology, which uses no ink. it is slated for release later this month in japan, and possibly elsewhere in the new year. perhaps the next step is a camera phone with a built in printer.
