Cigar-box thermal printer.

    Newer Older

    Wanted to put the thermal printer in something, to keep it from flopping around, and noticed this cigar box. Which was the perfect size. And then I thought, hey, why not throw an ethernet arduino in there too, and make it like one of these? So now I basically have this. Right now it's printing William Gibson's tweets until I figure out how to get ISS pass data to it.

      This is amazing. It's like your own Little Printer, which isn't even out yet.

      Well, all the amazing stuff was done by Adafruit. I just put it in a box. :) I haven't even messed with the code yet-it was really easy to get going.

      Probably one of the best-smelling Arduino projects ever!

      Cutting the hole for the printer smelled great! :)

      That's awsome.
      Old cigar boxes are great for these types of things.
      I have used some myself for similar projects.
