Say hello to the world's first full-colour desktop 3D printer

3D printer firm XYZprinting is looking to usher in a new era of full-colour 3D printing with the da Vinci Color, the world’s first full-colour 3D printer. The device uses 3DColorJet technology and is able to combine inkjet printing with fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printing.

The da Vinci Color's CMYK ink cartridges allow for a range of 16 million of shades to choose from, while the print bed permits a generous 20 cm x 20 cm x 15 cm in build volume in a desk friendly package.

The da Vinci Color will be available later this year with a recommended price of €3,599 (£3,285). To complete this new 3D printer, four ink cartridges (20ml) will be available. ink comes with 40 colour models of 5 cm3 (approx) at a recommended public price of €65 (£59).

Bose has just unveiled the SoundLink Micro Bluetooth speaker, its smallest, most rugged portable speaker yet. Measuring just 9.83cm wide and deep, 3.48cm high, and weighing a mere 0.29 kgs, the Micro is tiny - until you turn it on, that is. 

With unmatched sound for its size, and tested beyond its IPX7 waterproof rating, the Micro lets you enjoy music, take and make calls, and access Siri or your Google Assistant – out loud and anywhere, like never before. The new SoundLink Micro comes in black, midnight blue, and bright orange. It will be available from 21 September, 2017 for £99.95 at Bose.co.uk.
