Any disabled Inkjet printer?
Clogged printhead's nozzles stuff the storeroom with disabled inkjet printers. Fast tech advancement sees printers as disposable, helping create wastes to our degrading Earth.
To fulfill the cradle-to-cradle policy, the Papyrusaur designed as a small widget to shred paper revives the disabled inkjet printers by clipping it tightly to the printer’s two sides and positioning it right onto the output paper tray to crunch paper. While printing waste papers to shred, toothed belts connecting the paper feeding roller and the widget’s gears transfer power from the printer motor to the Papyrusaur without any extra energy
