Just because they could – nano printers
Berg design studio has unveiled a miniature web-connected printer which aims to add some physicality back in to a world dominated by glaring screens and finger swiping.
The appropriately named Little Printer can churn out daily puzzles, photos, weather updates and more, all of which be easily be filtered via a corresponding phone app. Thermal printing technology is an added bonus – no ink, no mess.
The ability to send messages to other printers will no doubt result in some mischievous shenanigans, but overall it's a quirky concept whose good-natured little face effectively melts our gadget hearts.
