Using a thermal printer, an Arduino and a Raspberry Pi these two makers have produced something great!

With the quick press of a button the Arduino is sending poems to the thermal printer. Inspired by this, another maker went on to produce a similar device, but this time taking it a step further by using a Raspberry PI!

    Haha, who says that the humanities and the STEM subjects are sworn enemies. A fine example of poetry and ports playing nice with each other.
