Solar-powered portable printing press reports current events instantly using social media.

As part of this year’s Milan Design Week, Dezeen have partnered with design research collaborative Space Caviar to create a solar-powered machine that uses advanced algorithms to generate news. The device publishes free news in real-time, all of which is sourced from live speeches and social media streams related to the event’s proceedings.

Space Caviar have dubbed the algorithm Fear of Missing Out (FOMO), and will distribute printed copies to anyone attending the event. Dezeen will also make PDFs of the articles available to download for anyone who can’t attend.
