Artist Lorenzo Bravi ran a drawbot class for kids as part of the Minimondi Festival in Parma, Italy. His design uses a battery powered milk frother with pens velcroed to it, making some lovely Spirograph-esque art.

    Cool idea. And you can get the AeroLatte knock-off frothers at IKEA for like $2. I have a couple extra in my kitchen drawer.
