Super Awesome Sylvia's WaterColorBot


In the past, we’ve posted about Sylvia, the host of Sylvia’s Super-Awesome Maker Show. Today, we want to promote Sylvia’s latest project - a joint effort with Evil Mad Scientist Labs - called “Super Awesome Sylvia’s WaterColorBot.”

The WaterColorBot is essentially a basic CNC machine that uses a paintbrush and water colors instead of a router head. It can create pretty amazing originals or copies of artwork.

The WaterColorBot uses the SparkFun EiBotBoard, our two-channel stepper motor controller that was originally designed for the Egg-Bot project.

So check out the Kickstarter and support a fantastic project!

  • Check it out this new project on kickstarter, dual head 3d printer for less than 1K, and it looks awesome!

  • Darn, I thought it said water cooler bot. So disappointed.

    • “have you grown tired of taking an empty cup, holding it under a spigot, pressing a lever for water, and lifting a full cup to your face hole?” “well worry no more!!” “the Face Filler 5000 can do this incredible thing for you!!”

      • Face recognition package optional: the Nutri-matic Drink Filler will only relinquish the filtered, refreshing aqua to those who are authorized. Stop H2O Theft! Awkward Conversation Database available for added human contact simulation.

  • Sweet! Looks like it should adapt fairly easily to a drawbot, too. Fitting it with a pen, you could make a 1-color drawings with just a software tweak (take out the dipping and washing motions). You would need a grip/release mechanism for multicolor, however. I bet that could be done in the pen tray.
