Charlotte Dann otherwise know as “Charbytes” has created a very unique drawing machine which is powered by Arduino and can be controlled by the magnets embedded in her fingers.
Watch the video below to learn more about the Arduino powered magnetic drawing machine which is being created as part of her Masters degree and offers a unique and very innovative way to make your mark.
Using an Arduino mounted with a magnetometer, node.js and socket.io, this project uses disturbances in the magnetic field to draw. An Arduino-powered machine that draws pretty things when interfered with by magnets, like the ones in my hands. In retrospect, probably should have dwelled a bit more on the whole “I have magnets in my hands” thing.
