Web Receipt Is Snap Shot of Web
Little Printer is a thermal printer which browses the web and prints up interesting snippets of information.
I love my iPhone and use it for many things, keeping a calendar, phone book, email, text etc, but I still prefer a piece of paper to make my daily list of to-do’s. Likewise, it’s best to read a story from a book or magazine. Well, along those same lines of “analog” textual feeling is the Little Printer. A printer designed to print up a receipt of information for a grab-n-go read.
For all the douche-bags who are going to write about going green, or go paperless, or get with the times and read your phone – you know I’m right when I say – screw you! Sometimes paper is better.
When Little Printer becomes available in 2012, it will have access to customized updates from Arup, Foursquare, Google, the Guardian, and Nike. The company says it is working to bring more publishers on board for a later date.
We love physical stuff. Connecting products to the Web lets them become smarter and friendlier – they can sit on a shelf and do a job well, for the whole family or office – without all the attendant complexities of computers, like updates or having to tell them what to do. Little Printer is more like a family member or a colleague than a tool.
Plus paper is like a screen that never turns off. You can stick to the fridge or tuck it in your wallet. You can scribble on it or tear it and give it to a friend.
