mDrawBot 4-in-1 Drawing Robot : Deviant Artist

 |  |  |  |  March 27, 2015


If you love Evil Mad Scientist’s Eggbot, check out Makeblock’s mDrawBot. It’s a modular kit that you can assemble into one of four different forms, each suited to drawing on a particular surface. mEggbot draws on ellipsoidal surfaces just like Eggbot, mScara draws on horizontal surfaces, mSpider draws on vertical surfaces and mCar is a three-wheeled robot car that is essentially a mobile version of mScara.

Thanks to its modular nature, the mDrawBot can use a variety of drawing implements, including pens, chalk and even a laser engraver. It’s controlled by Orion, Makeblock’s modified Arduino Uno, although you can also make it work with a stock Uno. As for the software, Makeblock will release mDraw, an open source program that accepts SVG files. mDraw will work with Windows, OS X and Linux.

Pledge at least $179 (USD) on Kickstarter to receive a complete mDrawBot kit as a reward. You can also pledge at least $149 to receive the kit without the Orion board.
