Roller printer lets you make your own scrolls

Need a 100-page report fired off in 5 minutes? A laser printer can do it easily. Want a few 8x10s for your friends? That inkjet is up to the task. Got a hankerin’ for a 12-foot scroll? The Roller Printer has your back.

Roller printer? Yep, designer Jin Woo Han has conceived a printer that will print on extremely long lengths of paper, letting you create all the “Mission Accomplished” banners you want right in the privacy of your own home. It has a built-in cutter, so even if you’re printing conventional sizes most of the time, being able to switch to A4 paper on a whim will come in handy.

Of course, something this unusual would have to be a concept, so you won’t be able to buy it at CompUSA anytime soon (where would you get the rolls anyway?). Still, it seems unfair that the desktop scroll publishers out there need to run for the Scotch tape; we wouldn’t mind seeing this printer roll into reality. More pictures after the jump.
