Little Printer allows you to start your day with a cup of coffee and a tiny personalized printed newspaper, giving you not just the news, but also updates from your friends.

Little Printer is a cute, little cube-shaped printer, which has come into being through a partnership between Berg (a design consultancy), Foursquare, The Guardian, Nike, Arup and Google.

Using a smartphone app you can setup what you want in your personalized printed newspaper -- news feed, puzzles, things to do, birthday reminders, among others. You can also set up whether you want your newspaper once or twice a day. The printer works in a way similar to sales receipt. It has a spool of paper, which is printed using inkless thermal printer.

And at the touch of a button, the Little Printer curates the online content, and you can get your own personalized printed newspaper!
