egg-drawbot

While most Egg-Bot style machines draw complex geometric patterns, I quite like the randomness and layered colors of this drawbot. The maker Curtis Swartley lists the components used to build his machine,

Arduino Mega, two Uno’s, two motor shields, a couple of servos, a couple of stepper motors, a few limit switches, and a Sharpie marker = Random Pattern Easter Egg Machine
