This thing has so much potential, it's incredible. A couple of hardware items caught my eye, in particular:
HP CM6040 Booklet Maker CC516A $1,500 Refurb.
The other was that they are doing bindery work with a sewing machine!!! Pretty flippin cool!Save time and money by producing more complex marketing material in-house with the HP booklet maker/finisher which has a capacity of up to 2000 sheets and 25 saddle-stitched booklets. Work more efficiently and without interruptions as the HP booklet maker/finisher enables you to create multi-page documents and to print long runs, using two 1,000-sheet stacker bins and a 25 saddle-stitched booklet bin.

Milan 2014: Dezeen has teamed up with design research collaborative Space Caviar to distribute a free publication generated by an algorithmic journalism machine which will trawl content from social media and talks in Milan this week.
Led by former Domus editor Joseph Grima, Space Caviar has developed a real-time publishing algorithm called Fear of Missing Out (FOMO) a piece of software that will automatically create written articles from live speech and social media streams during a three-day programme of talks held in the Nike Aero-static Dome at Palazzo Clerici this week.
The FOMO publications will be printed and handed out for free from a travelling press room, but will be available to download from Dezeen.
"Inspired by the idea - as Bruce Sterling said - that "events are the new magazines", FOMO asks whether there is a remedy for the syndrome of missing out," said Space Caviar co-founder Joseph Grima. "Can the seemingly dead medium of print publishing adapt to the electronic age’s demand for instant gratification by embracing the speed of Twitter streams, Storify and various other social media?"
FOMO will use voice recognition software, combined with information scraped from online data including tweets and instagram activity using the hashtag #OnTheFlyMilan, to automatically generate a PDF document.
This is will then be published on the FOMObile – a roving publishing press with its own built-in power generator and solar-powered wi-fi hotspot. The press will print each PDF, which will be saddle stitched on the spot before being distributed for free. The PDF will also be available to download from Dezeen.
