Lego Printer == Awesome
The last Lego forum thread I started went down a storm so when I saw this Lego printer online at BoingBoing today I HAD to post it too.
YouTube user Horseattack
posted this video a few days ago of a printer that he made using Lego to move a felt tip pen across the page. He doesn't give much detail about how it was made or any instructions on how to do it, but the video is pure awesome.
Here's what he had to say about it in the video description:
"Lego felt tip 110" printer connected to an Apple Mac. This is not a kit you can buy and does not use mindstorms. I designed/built/coded it all from scratch including analog motor electronics, sensors and printer driver, the USB interface uses a "wiring" board.
