At the time of writing this, it actually already printed 68 tweets from all over the world.
However, since this is a project that will probably never be 100% done, here are my upcoming optimization tasks:
- For whatever reason the USB WiFi dongle on the raspberry pi burnt. Replace to have ultimate mobile experience.
- Streaming through my phone is not optimal. Best setup would be using a USB webcam driven by the raspberry pi which could stream up to a service that is capable of many viewers (sound / almost realtime)
- Newlines are now done by me pushing a button, since I need to change the paper and be in power of the roller that brings in the paper for that. This should be optional and make the new lines by itself.
- Endless paper is needed and attached to the cartridge to actually be fully automated.
Any thoughts on this / hints for streaming, please leave me a comment.
