Tom Taylor’s Microprinter, a web-connected receipt printer for daily notifications via Waxy… Tom writes-
The microprinter is an experiment in physical activity streams and notification, using a repurposed receipt printer connected to the web.
I use it for things like reminders, notifications, and my day at-a-glance, but anything that can be injected from the web and suits text only, short format messaging, will work.

This is slick. These machines are super reliable and thermal paper is cheap and recyclable.
I don’t know how well it’d work, but I’d like to see an ASCII art generator tied into this to allow crude images too.
Back when I was an ATM custodian the receipt printer (a thermal printer much like this) would self-test with a smiley face.
