A nice profile of BERG’s Little Printer. That Matt Webb is a smart cookie. He is also a very thoughtful cookie.

Dan makes a very good point about Little Printer: it’s not the “printer” part that matters; it’s the “little”.

This evolution of Tom Taylor’s microprinter looks like it’s going to be absolutely wonderful (and packed full of personality). Watch this space.

A great idea from Jessica Hische: find a good printer in your area. It’s beautifully designed and executed, with a lovely dollop of responsiveness.

Microprinter has a posse
…an experiment in physical activity streams and notification, using a repurposed receipt printer connected to the web.
Hackers across the country are buying up old old receipt printers and imaginatively repurposing them into something new.
It’s such a great little step on the way to a Web of Things. Here’s another such step, from Fluid Interfaces, built for less than $350 using a webcam, a 3M projector, a mirror and a mobile phone:
Students at the MIT Media Lab have developed a wearable computing system that turns any surface into an interactive display screen. The wearer can summon virtual gadgets and internet data at will, then dispel them like smoke when they’re done.
Sounds like a way of levelling up in the game of being Matt Jones:
He sees mobile as something of a super power device and described something he calls “bionic noticing” - obsessively recording curious things he sees around him, driven by this multi-capable device in his pocket.

Make your own 3D printer (you know, like the replicator in Star Trek) using sugar and an air pump. The results are astoundingly cool.
