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?

    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!
