The ZX Printer was released in 1981 and is compatible with the ZX80 (with ROM upgrade), ZX81 and ZX Spectrum. It is an extremely compact 32 column printer which uses aluminium coated paper. The printed image is ‘burned’ onto the surface of the paper by two metal pins which travel across the paper. A voltage is passed through these pins which causes a spark to be produced, leaving a black dot.
