Toilet Paper Printer

Built as a submission to “Mach flott den Schrott“, a hardware hacking contest put on by German technology magazine c’t, Mario Lukas’ Toilettenpapier-Drucker (Toilet Paper Printer) combines parts scavenged from surplus CD-ROM drives, an Arduino, and some miscellaneous bits to create a printer with a unique output. Supplied with an RSS or Twitter feed, the device will inscribe up-to-the-minute news on your favorite 2-ply. [Thanks, Christian!]
