London-based design studio BERG has created a small device that prints out personalized, receipt-sized paper strips with news, puzzles, social network updates and information from apps. The Little Printer connects wirelessly to the web via an included Bridge unit. Using your phone as a remote control, you can configure it and set up subscriptions to different publications, and it will then gather these together into a personalized print-out for you. When you press the button it produces small black and white thermal updates.

Their launch partners are Arup, Foursquare, Google, the Guardian and Nike, so you can read the top headlines, plan your next run or view the latest check-ins. BERG’s CEO Matt Webb discusses the benefits of paper in a digital world:

Paper is like a screen that never turns off. You can stick to the fridge or tuck it in your wallet. You can scribble on it or tear it and give it to a friend.

The Little Printer will be available for pre-order in 2012 and it’s the first of several connected, wireless products that the company has in development. Check out the video below for more information:
