Some students at Georgia Tech built this sweet print-bot, built on a iRobot iCreate. Love the way the talc “ink” interacts with the pile of the carpet to look like stitchery. Go GT!

    So is this talc “ink”, or “talc” ink?

  • Anonymous

    it’s talc “ink”, since it’s not really an ink, but a powder. (talcum powder)

    I’m really impressed by the ingenuity of their “ink” dispenser… A drill bit and a funnel… Genius!
