Next time you and your budding young tinkerers need something to do on a rainy day, you should have no trouble scraping up the parts to put together this crude, drawing robot project that we saw at the Seattle Robotics Society Robothon.

I used to do something like that when I was a kid...but mine was much more low tech...

a piece of cardboard with holes for 4 markers...sort of looked like a little table...and for the motor I set it on the washing machine during the spin cycle. The vibrations made the thing move.  :D

Oh I get it! You take the caps off the markers and it draws! I'm a quick one!  :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:
