We told you Sylvia of Sylvia’s Super-Awesome Maker Show! would participate in an official White House G+ hangout. But what will she demo? The answer is, a project she worked on with Lenore and Windell of EMSL: a robot that can paint with watercolors! The bot is still in beta but you can see it in action at RoboGames as well as (of course) Maker Faire Bay Area.


The Road to Maker Faire Challenge will award $2,500 to one winner to bring his or her project to World Maker Faire on Sep. 21 & 22, 2013 in New York. Use the funding for materials, transport, or anything else you might need to get to Maker Faire. Applications are due by 11:59pm PT on August 5, 2013.

    i’m building something similar but for acrylics. It’s cool to see someone else do a painting bot.
