Georgia Tech team make talc print robot

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2007/12...h_talc_robot/1

In the tech equivalent to messing around in the kitchen with flour and getting a scolding from your mother, a team of students have made a robot which prints on carpet using talcum powder.

w00t, my project for 4th year embedded system is a "mouse" no, not the one that eats cheese, nor the one with optical eye that u move around ur hand to point stuff in the monitor.... but a standalone electro-mechanical entity with AI capable of solving a maze and find the shortest path

i miss college

no wait, not entirely... lol but its always good to see undergraduate computer program that keeps pushing the limit of creativity!

Reminds me of when someone drew a huge penis outside our school canteen in salt!

I wonder how anyone came up with this idea! Its genius though - the next step should be to put a vacuum on one end, so it can clean up after itself and replenish the supplies!

Maybe you could use it to automate seed planting for farmers?

wasn't a very similar system alreadsy developed by a student at MIT. It did the same thing with powdered chalk and it was attached to a bicycle allowing him to draw messages on the sidewalk by just riding around

GG. We had a similar type of cartoonist like Heath Robinson here in Denmark namely Storm P. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Storm_Petersen He was a painter too.. He did more then 60.000 drawings and various other works of art.
