If you would prefer to read tweets, news, or sports results on something a little more physical than a digital display. A new mini printer developed and built by Adafruit called the “Internet of Things” printer might be the perfect product for you.
The mini printer uses small receipt rolls to printout incoming tweets, and other information for you to read at your leisure. Watch the video after the jump to see the Internet of Things printer in action.
The Adafruit Internet of Things Printer is equipped with a Ethernet port and comes supplied with a sketch that will connect to Twitters API. The sketch can easily be amended to suit your own needs with a little tweaking.
“The project is not very difficult but does require some light soldering, so you’ll want to have a little experience with a soldering iron. You’ll also need a small flathead screwdriver to assemble the box. It’s also best if you’ve had a little Arduino experience so you can feel comfortable downloading the IDE and uploading our example sketch.”
The Internet of Things (IoT) printer is now available to purchase for $90 and comes supplied as a lit that will require a little soldering.Filed Under: DIY Projects, Gadgets News
