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. Adafruit has example python code for a few different printouts including a daily weather forecast report, sudoku puzzles, image printer and a tweeter 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 so its easy to adapt and write your own custom printer software 

The project is based on Raspberry Pi, and while its not a very complex project soldering-wise it does require some soldering and assembly work. It is also recommended that the user has some Linux experience or help: Adafruit has a lot of tutorials to help you through the process but Adafruit doesn't have any specific Linux tutorials so knowing how to move around directories, ssh, and create and save text files is a good idea!
