Little Printer That Lives In Your Home
These days internet is a big part of our lives. New media is digital and it’s fair to say that paper media has been slowly declining over the years. However not everything is turning away from traditional media. Just as with books and magazines, there is something real about being able to hold and feel the object instead of looking at it through glass.
One little gadget aims to close the gap between old and new media and it’s called ‘Little Printer’ by Berg Cloud. As well as being extremely cute, this little printer is able to provide mini newspaper strips of puzzles, news, images, social feeds and much more. By simply connecting it to your pc or smartphone this little printer will provide you with a vide range of resources any time of the day. Simply subscribe to your favourite publications and chose when you want them to be delivered. You can set it to provide you with news updates in the morning, puzzles for lunch and social summaries at night.
Inside this gadget is a compact, ink-less thermal printer. It’s wireless connection lets you set the printer anywhere in your home provided there is a power connection nearby. Little Printer also merges new and traditional media by making communication easy and more instantaneous. You can now send a message to your friends Little Printer from your laptop or smartphone and your friend will get it straight away.
Because the Little Printer uses recycled thermal paper, there is potentially n damage to the environment. The physical printer itself does not have any interface ability because you fully control and interact with it through your phone. You will quickly become familiar with the Little Printer App as it’s very easy to use and features a simple straightforward design.
