Build an "Internet of Things" connected mini printer that will do your bidding! This is a fun weekend project that comes with a beautiful laser cut case. Once assembled, the little printer connects wirelessly to get Internet data for printing onto 2 1/4" wide receipt paper. Based on a Raspberry Pi computer, this is a powerful mini Linux machine. We have example python code for a few different printouts including a daily weather forecast report, sudoku puzzles, image printer and a tweeter printer that connects Twitter's search API and retrieve and print tweets according to your requests: you can have it print out tweets from a person, a hashtag, mentioning a word, etc! All the code is open source so its easy to adapt and write your own custom printer software

Use 3mm acrylic sheet, 10 #4-40 screws (1/2 inch), and 10 hexnuts to assemble this enclosure. A pair of small ~5mm stand-offs can be used to lift the Raspberry Pi off the acrylic, or you can 3D print them.
