Hektor – The spray painting robot

Hektor – The spray painting robot

Clever design for a spray painting bot – “Hektor consists of a suitcase which contains two electric motors, a spray-can holder, toothed belts, cables, a strong battery and a circuit board which is connected to a laptop and controls the machine. The motors that are mounted onto the wall suspend the can holder through the toothed belts and define its position by changing the length of these belts.” [via] – videos.
