It’s a lovely idea that, like all innovations, is made of other ideas. Passengers choose a one, three or five minute story and a little printer, reminiscent of BERG’s Little Printer, conjures up a story for you. All for free. As Metro put it:
The stories are printed on paper, and topics range from children’s stories to lyrical poetry. The authors of the stories are all anonymous, and over 5,000 have submitted stories.
It’s a lovely example of the potential for rethinking how content is distributed (and is something I’ve been exploring in my recent ‘Micro-Publications’ masterclasses).
