Return of CandleBot

About a year ago I starting working with Justin Windle (aka Soulwire) on a drawing robot project, 'Dada'. Which aimed to refurbish a defunct industrial robot for creative purposes. Progress has been slow for a number of reasons but I recently realised that it would be much easier to develop my embedded drawing algorithms on a smaller and easier to control robot. Hence, CandleBot (originally called CanvasBot) has been dusted off and recently equipped with Inverse Kinematics and a Smoothing algorithm (which I developed on Sunday). It's working quite nicely as this picture of the robot drawing a house shows:

For more details visit the Dada project website, where details of the algorithms, videos and future drawings will be posted :
