“I am the eggbot, they are the eggbot”

In honor of John Lennon’s birthday, here’s a piece of cool, inexplicable conceptual techno-art that might be right up John and Yoko’s alley. It’s an untitled piece by Christopher Kaczmarek and was shown at last month’s ArtBots show in Dublin. I found it on the Solarbotics site. They gave it a shout out ’cause the device uses the SCC3766 Solar Cells and GM10 Gear Motors they sell.

Untitled, 2006

    call me crazy, but i think you should at least provide a link to the MAKERS site not just a parts seller. It has some interesting stuff on it other than just this piece.

    Christopher Kaczmarek:

    (this piece is ‘untitled’ under recent works link)


    can anyone out there direct me to a schematic of the circuit that is running this piece? looks pretty simple but i would love to look over a drawing or other explanation. please post any link you may have in the comments below. THANKS!


    btw this piece has nothing to do with john lennon, peace, etc. all that is good but why make it look like this piece is about that? just because it is posted today? im cornfused.

    Okay. You’re crazy. I have a link to the piece’s page, it’s after the item (“Untitled, 2006”), in the spot where I always place the most important link in the piece.

    This piece looks just like Arthur Ganson’s Machine with Egg Shells, except his was hand-cranked. It’s on his DVD:

    I am the walrus
    That is one of the best songs ever.
