But the really cool thing here is Berg Cloud. Well, potentially cool, since we’ve just seen video of it. But together they make me, a developer and lover of small, cute things, really excited. So excited that I checked out the price of thermal printers and found out they are staggeringly expensive.
But then I remembered I already own a thermal printer. A cheap one that prints labels. So I researched a little more and figured out how one could have their own thermal printer to hack away on:
Not as cute as the Little Printer, but appears to do the printing part of the equation. Mine prints pretty detailed stamps, so I think it should handle graphics like the ones that were in the demo. I haven’t gotten my hands on the continuous thermal paper yet, so I can’t say if the SDK will give as much control over printing, but it seems like a fun project if you’re looking for one.
