Eggbot Kit: for Geeky Easter Bunnies

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  September 10, 2010


Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories recently introduced their latest non-diabolical creation – the Eggbot. It’s an “open source art robot” that can draw on spherical or ellipsoidal surfaces.

The Eggbot can draw on objects with diameters ranging from 1.25 to 4.25 inches, so you can forget about drawing on your head. It has two stepping motors – one to rotate the object, and one to rotate the drawing instrument. A servo motor raises and lowers the writing instrument.

The chassis is made of fiberglass and is highly adjustable, so it can firmly grip the object that it’s drawing on. So what can you make with the Eggbot? Things like these!

Awesome, eh? Eggbot isn’t for total newbies though. It requires a couple of basic tools, a couple of hours to build, and you have to know – or learn  – how to use Inkscape, an open source vector graphics editor, because that’s where you’ll make your drawings. You can pre-order the Eggbot kit at Evil Mad Science for $195 (USD).
