Friday Night Drawbot

Our own little Friday Night Drawbot got invited to City Hall!

(OK, well, that’s not exactly what happened, but that’s how I plan to tell the story…)

Milwaukee Makerspace took part in the first Art Jamboree held recently by the fine folks at Art Milwaukee, and while I couldn’t attend, the spunky little Friday Night Drawbot was able to make it, and he did his best to wow the crowd with his take on robotic art.

So here’s the deal… join us Friday, March 9th, 2012 at Milwaukee’s City Hall for the Art Jamboree, and if you’re lucky, you’ll walk away with art created by a Sharpie-wielding robot.

I’ll be there this time, and I hooe to see you there as well.

So what did I do at DrawCamp? Well, I had the Friday Night Drawbot working hard at creating some drawings, and here they are for you to enjoy!

Friday Night Drawbot

You may be familiar with our Friday Night Drawbot from back when it was at Version 1. Well, we’re now at Version 3, and there’s been much improvement. With Version 2 we made the body a bit shorter to get a tighter turn radius, and we’ve continued that trend with the latest revision.

We’ve also switched to AA rechargeable batteries, so no more disposable 9 volts. This means that we can use our eneloops and since we’ve got a dozen of them, we can run all day and switch them out as needed.

We’re also using a Diavolino from Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories now, which means we can use a shield, which means we’ve cleaned things up a bit as far as the wiring. The “brains” are also detachable from the rest of the body now. Speaking of the body, we’ve rebuilt that as well, and used hot glue and velcro in place of duct tape and rubber bands, so things are a lot more secure. (Don’t worry, there’s still gaff tape and rubber bands, but it’s much cleaner now.)

Keep an eye out for the Friday Night Drawbot at the next event that somehow manages to blend art and technology…. or something like that.

(Oh, I’ll also be adding a bunch more info on the Friday Night Drawbot project page.)

QuibbleBots like to quibble. Also, they are robots, hence the name.
