How do you make something as mundane and ubiquitous as an inkjet printer interesting, or even innovative? Well, inventive designer Mugi Yamamoto seems to have solved this issue and hit on something really original with the Stack.

The printer is placed on top of a stack of papers and – when activated – begins moving downwards, printing the pages as it goes and expelling them when done, creating a new pile of printed documents atop it. This unique way of printing enables the Stack to do away with a paper tray, thus removing the most cumbersome feature of a modern printer and minimizing the necessity of frequent reloading.
