Meet the Egg-Bot

Published by patrick honner on

egg-botThis is pretty awesome:  an assemble-yourself perhipheral that allows you to draw on spherical/ellipsoidal/other objects:  the egg-bot!

Plug it in to your USB port, render your drawing in a freeware illustration program, and voila!  And it’s open-source:  both hardware and software.

There are so many interesting things that could be done with the egg-bot:  sketching grid lines on ellipsoids to illustrate parametric surfaces, investigating how projection affects map-making, graphing closed-curves on golf balls, or maybe just creating the greatest Easter Eggs in human history.
