IoT printer with graphics and dynamic content

by lazyatom on Thu Apr 12, 2012 6:28 am

Hi all,

We've built an open-source distributed software system for making it simple to produce really great looking content on little printers like that in the IoT printer kit. Take a look here: http://gofreerange.com/printer.

I strongly suspect that it would be trivial to get this working with the IoT kit itself. Anyone fancy giving it a go?

Gorgeous output!

I won't be available to look into this until after the weekend, but otherwise, yes, I'm eager to get it working with our printer.

Great! I'm really keen to hear about how you get on.

If you hit any stumbling blocks or have any other feedback, please do get in touch - printer at gofreerange com, or http://github.com/freerange/printer/issues.
