For my drawing class I had to make a “drawing machine” and I decided to make use of this link that’ I’ve had in my bookmarks for like a year and a half even though I could see no real reason to make one. So I made this little dude (its name is Walky-Draw) and had it walk through some paint and stuff. I had to make a video of it to turn in at the end so I guess you might as well get to see it, if you want to watch a tiny automaton walk down a ramp with ink on its feet and listen to the beginning of a Pink Floyd song.
Working with this small wooden robot was more difficult than most group projects I’ve had to do with actual people. I made a few videos before this one but I couldn’t use any of them because they were all full of me going “No dude, no, not like that, what’s your problem, why is it so difficult to walk down a hill, you were doing this fine yesterday, what’s different about now?”
In the end the results were mostly uninteresting, but the little guy was fun to play with. The instructions are up at that link up there, so if you want to make yourself a little walky bot you can click on that and also watch a video with much more dramatic music than mine.
