After only a short period of time in the world of Arduino, creative developer Kris Temmerman has created a fantastic painting machine that can reproduce an image created on an Android tablet in real life with an Arduino Due-controlled painting device. This is a simple XY-axis device that holds a paint brush and is commanded to move the brush around when required, with a requirement for the human to provide a paint pot at the required juncture. This is shown in the following video:
Although still an experimental project, it does work and shows what can be done without too much work - so for more information including schematics and the required code check out Kris' interesting website. And for more, we're on facebook, Google+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.
Looking for an Arduino Due-compatible board but with more connectivity possibilities and options than the original? Then check out our new EtherDue board:
It's the Arduino Due-compatible board with the Freetronics additions including Ethernet network connectivity, MAC address chip, microSD storage, optional PoE, upgraded power supply and more - while retaining the simplicity and ease of the Arduino IDE (with 100% compatibility). And you still have a full USB interface for uploading sketches and direct programming. For more information on this powerful board, check out the EtherDue product page.
