Matt Web, BERG: Little Printer Prints Miniature Newspaper

Matt Webb, CEO and Principal at BERG, introduced their upcoming technology — an electronic gadget that’s even cuter (and more high tech) than a Tamagotchi, at PSFK CONFERENCE LONDON that already has a waiting list: “Little Printer,” a mini-printing press with orange feet and a smiling face.

“Little Printer” allows its user to compile a personalized miniature newspaper based on their interests and tastes, pulling stories from sources like Google, The New York Times and The Guardian. You can print news stories, pictures, to-do lists and even cut your printer’s ever-growing bangs. Oh yes, and every time it receives a message to print it’s smile grows bigger (because, of course, it loves giving and receiving news).

For those companies who are interested in being one of the mediums from which users can collect files, BERG has created easy to use software online, which works in HTML programming. Organizations can upload pictures and text, format them and they’ll print out in black and white. This just goes to show that print is not dead – it’s more accessible and personable than ever.

Some highlights from the talk:

  • At-home platforms can transform both print and digital industries.
  • Mixing humor with substance can create successful technologies.
  • It is more and more important to be able to program in HTML.
