REVISED PRODUCT – Adafruit IoT Pi Printer Project Pack – V2


Build an “Internet of Things” connected mini printer that will do your bidding! This is a fun weekend project that comes with a beautiful laser cut case. Once assembled, the little printer connects wirelessly to get Internet data for printing onto 2 1/4″ wide receipt paper. Based on a Raspberry Pi computer, this is a powerful mini Linux machine. We have example Python code for a few different printouts, including a daily weather forecast report, Sudoku puzzles, an image printer, and a Tweet-printer that connects Twitter’s search API and retrieve and print tweets according to your requests: you can have it print out tweets from a person, a hashtag, mentioning a word, etc! All the code is open-source and written in Python, so it’s easy to adapt and write your own custom printer software.

The project is based on Raspberry Pi, and while it’s not a very complex project soldering-wise, it does require a little simple soldering and assembly. This project is good to take on if you’ve set up a Raspberry Pi computer before and know how to run commands on your Pi.

This kit contains all you need but the Pi and tools. Raspberry Pi computer is not included. You can use a Raspberry Pi Zero, Zero W, B+, 2 or Pi 3. We recommend using a Pi 3 or Pi Zero W because the built in WiFi will save you a step. If you are using a Pi Zero you will also need to pick up a 2×20 header to solder in so you can plug in the connectors.

We’ve totally revamped this kit, so it’s less expensive and easier to build! Check out our tutorial on how to build this kit over at learn.adafruit.com. Some assembly, including a little soldering, is required – but it’s totally worth it.
