WaterColorBot 2.0: Robo-painter

 |  |  |  |  November 27, 2014


Hey, even I can be Van Gogh with this crazy contraption and I have zero artistic talent. Basically, the WaterColorBot is a robotic painter that gets it’s input from vector artwork on a computer. It can also will copy real-time sketching, transferring the design to paper with its brush arm and a set of watercolor paints. At last I can be a real artist. Even if my art still tends to look like a 4-year-old’s with a twitchy caffeine brush-finger.

Think of it as a CNC machine that holds a brush instead of a carving bit. The 2.0 version has an aluminum carriage with crossed linear roller bearings and arrives fully assembled so you can get going as soon as you unbox it. It uses standard watercolors on your choice of paper, so there are no special things to buy. It connects right to your computer.

It looks like a a lot of fun for kids and adults alike. It’s available from Evil Mad Scientist for $295(USD).
