Thingiverse citizen Joo has just shared the hands down, cutest robotic drawing dry erase clock you’ve ever seen ever, called the “PlotClock.” This is the kind of awesome robot that makes me want to drop everything I’m doing to build one. Much like the Piccolo video, I could watch this little clock write/erase the time all day. The design is inspired and elegant, using one servo to rock the other two backwards for a pen lift, and using a small “cup” with an fuzzy bottom to transform the pen into an eraser.
Joo has kindly shared lots of photos and instructions on this FabLab wiki and the code on Github.
So…. Does anyone in the SF Bay Area have a laser cutter they could let me use? 🙂
Hat tip and monocle nod to Tbuser for pointing project out to me.
