The Happiness Machine: Print Happy Thoughts When You ‘Depress’ A Button

UK-based digital artist and designer Brendan Dawes created an internet-connected printer that collects and prints happy thoughts by random people from across the web.

At the ‘depression’ of the printer’s simple black button, The Happiness Machine reveals a thought from someone who mentioned the word “happy”.

You can tear the happy thought off and put it in your wallet or purse, or give it to someone else to brighten up their day.

The Happiness Machine hopes to remind us that behind every web-post, whether on Twitter or Tumblr, there is a real person—we just haven’t met them yet.

The thermal-paper printer uses content from Jonathan Harris’ crowd-sourced emotional collection website ‘We Feel Fine’.
