Dezeen and Space Caviar, which is led by former Domus editor Joseph Grima, created a publication specially designed for those who suffer from the Fear of Missing Out (FOMO). Created for this year’s Milan Design Week, the free FOMO publication is automatically generated by an algorithmic journalism machine that takes content from social media and conferences during the event.

The solar-powered machine prints out the publication, though it can also be downloaded from the fellow design blog.

Using software that automatically creates written articles at the speed of Twitter streams, Instagram and other social media, the machine also uses voice recognition software to turn speeches into text.

If you want to take part, simply use the #OnTheFlyMilan hashtag from April 9 – 11, 2014.
