Hello, Little Printer

We don’t think we want to print out our personalized news feeds but that doesn’t mean we wont want to play with this adorable printer from BERG, a design studio in London.

The printer grabs your “news” from Arup, Foursquare, Google and The Guardian and gives you a receipt size printout of your digital feed.

Though the Little Printer can seem a bit baffling, it’s really a quietly different paradigm for technology: It’s a hack of old technologies, aimed at creating a calmer vision of social networking. It’s a limited device that’s meant to fit into our day rather than demand attention. As [BERG’s Jack] Shulze points out, amid the din of contemporary tech, “There’s room for shared objects and content that moves a little slower.”…

…Much like a DVR, the Berg Cloud Bridge is a box that plugs into your router and manages online subscriptions from Berg’s content partners (Google, The Guardian, foursquare, and Arup). Each person in a household can create a custom newspaper by managing those subscriptions on an iPhone app. So whenever Mom leaves for work at 7:30, the printer can have current news headlines, a “mini newspaper,” waiting for her to read on the train, along with a crossword. When Dad takes the kids to school at 8:30, his daily to-do list could be ready at the door, along with popular pictures from his Instagram network.

Kind of like having a personalized wire service, old school style, but cuter.
