Home technology users looking for the latest gadgets could take an interest in the latest offering from printer maker and ink supplies firm Kodak.

One of the additional options on its new ESP Office 2170 all-in-one model is the ability to produce 3D images that can appear to leap off the page when viewed with a pair of special glasses.

Testing the printer for the Globe and Mail, Chad Sapieha noted that while this is an interesting bonus feature, the ESP Office 2170 is also a highly capable standard printer that offers scanning, faxing and copying functionality without the need for a PC.

He also praised the simple set up of the device, a selling point that was also highlighted recently by Ali Heriyanto of Chip Chick, who noted the great savings on ink cartridges that the model could offer.

Mr Saphieha added the ability to print direct from an Apple or BlackBerry mobile device is a useful addition and the "surprisingly deep" paper tray makes it useable as a workhorse for home users.
