I'm pretty sure that this is the same robot arm that uses a stylus to "beat" an "are you a robot?" captcha test!
If it mimics what you do, why not just draw on the paper yourself?
I am kind of digging this little robot idea as a way to "draw" for family and friends across the world. Give one as a gift, and then occasionally bring it to life, spontaneously giving a gift of a doodle. Could be a lot of fun!
p.s. Personally thought, I am thinking they should go with a simpler edition. Forget the "attach rPi or Arduino" language and go for "make from your iPhone" crowd. At $80 price tag, this is a neat little thing to give grandparents for Xmas or just for fun, and then doodle for them. Could be a huge success.
Now this little robot got me excited. It seems so simple yet has so many use-cases not only for drawing but stuff like music (like in the video). And I guess based on the starting price it's totally worth even if as just something to play around with πŸ™ƒ
A little sad that their first run is so small. :(
