Frankfurter Buchmesse (book fair) and Thermal Tweeter

in conferences, web platforms by DP | 2 comments

irrenhaus gave us a rundown on Frankfurter Buchmesse book fair he visited earlier this year. Here is what attracted his interest and ours:

The art installation is the mainly interesting thing:For rows of 34 thermal printers each. All 136 thermal printers were printing – guess what – twitter messages.

It was impressive – an impressive waste of paper :)

You can check out the thermal Tweeter project we did a couple of months back for a DIY version.

Via the forum.
