I was already waiting on his post. I got an email from him before the conference showing his results. Once I am done with other printheads I cannot wait to try this one.

That is not what I expected to be on the inside.

When you add ink or water to it, does it fill the plastic bellows or go past it. I expect that the ink needs to be on within the black plastic body with the printhead on it and not within the clear bellows to work, but I have a bit of difficulty understanding it right now.

I understood what this air bubble is for.
the bubble is a valve and it regulates the pressure in the print head
Constant pressure is applied to the print head.if there is not enough ink in the head tank a vacuum is formed
then into the bubble through the upper valve air is drawn and it swells up and opens the constant ink pressure valve
