I can haz? - rad things on my global wishlist
If you’re RSS feeds are anything like mine, then you’ve already conceded that you just can’t read everything that pings to you. Not possible. So you just dip in and out every so often. But there’s always the few things you check regularly.
London-based designed agency BERG have come up with an interesting little device to help you cherry pick the best bits. Forget the paper verse pixel debate with BERG’s Little Printer. It’s a palm-sized wireless thermal printer that you can push aggregated information to.
Using your smart device you can print from a number of sources on it’s receipt sized paper. It might be your daily to do list, the latest headlines from Google News and The Guardian, or a list of where your friends are from Foursquare. While it has a list of partners, you can also push other things like messages and images. You can even schedule stuff so that your info is on hand when you want it to be.
The ‘Little Printer’ holds a compact, inkless, thermal printer which has zero-configuration wireless connection to the Web (via the Bridge unit, included), allowing you to place it wherever you have a power outlet in your home or office. It’s constructed in high-gloss injected moulded plastic, while a brushed steel faceplate holds the paper, framing each delivery as it prints. You can even schedule print runs so your info is on hand at your preferred time.
