Pi-Print: build a cheap bluetooth printer for ugly prints

Quite often during parties, people could use their phone to take not-always-very-artistic pictures. Let’s make a printer these photographs deserve.

Send an image file with bluetooth, and print it!

Mainly inspired by the [ch00f] PrintSnap Instant Camera.

and the Polatherm Instant Camera.

DETAILS

When I saw the Instant camera of [ch00f], I was amazed by the cheap thermal printer. I like the Raspberry Pi, I already use it for another project. It have a serial port, and even an optional camera module.

But wait, we all (nearly) have a camera on our phone, with Bluetooth. Why not make a cheap Bluetooth thermal printer !
