      Pipsta USB & NFC Thermal Mini-Printer for Raspberry Pi

      The Pipsta USB & NFC thermal mini-printer from Able Systems is an Internet of Things device that connects to a Raspberry Pi computer board for printing.

      How does thermal printing work?
      Thermal printing works by heating the thermal paper as it passes over the print head, which in turn, produces black and white text/imagery. It also means that the printing process is quick, quiet and inkless. No noise, no mess, no time wasting.
