spinbot The Bots of Maker Shed

SpinBot Kit, $25

Here’s a super fun, easy, and inexpensive kit for building a three-pen drawbot. This is a perfect project to do as a family or for the kids to do by themselves with minimal supervision. You can have your “bot” together in minutes and all you have to do is add markers (and a battery). If you remember spinart toys as a kid, this is a cool 21st century upgrade.
