‘little printer’ by BERG

london-based design studio BERG has developed  ‘little printer‘, a compact, inkless, thermal printer which can produce receipt-sized miniature newspapers, notes, or images directly from a cellular device.through the custom-designed BERG cloud program, the printer connects wirelessly to any smartphone with zero configuration. ‘little printer’ itself is constructed from a high-gloss injected moulded plastic with a brushed steel faceplate, intended to hold the paper and thus framing each delivery as it prints.

the ‘little printer’ has the potential to print documents from ARUP, foursquare, google, the guardian and nike. users can also set and manage subscriptions for the device, so that data is automatically printed at prespecified times of day.
