    One of the products at the 2015 NRF show that caught my eye – though my eyes couldn’t quite catch up to it – was the A799II thermal receipt printer by CognitiveTPG. Promoted as the “fastest receipt printer,” the A799 shows in this video it can print the over 4,500-word United States Constitution in about 9 seconds.
