Although we have enjoyed exchanging information electronicly these days, paper is still a useful media for communications. From this viewpoint, a printer is a fascinating device to connect the cyber space to the real world. In this research we propose a peer-to-peer remote printing system. Printer devices, however, remain yet large and heavy because they require papers and inks. It is still difficult to carry around the printers devices. In this paper, we propose an advanced printing system for ubiquitous computing, PrinterSurf which provides a flexible printing service anytime anywhere via computer networks using PCs and closely-located printer devices. This paper introduces our research on PrinterSurf as well as some issues to be dealt with in future.
