Joto is a modern take on an X/Y plotter that displays pictures, screenshots, notes and more by drawing them on a whiteboard marker, then erasing them when it’s time for a new image. With support from developers, it can integrate with apps like Twitter, Slack and Spotify.
Tha developers of the world’s largest menagerie of creepy robots have taken wraps off of Handle, a 6.5 foot-tall research robot that can drive along at 9 mph and jump up to 4 feet in the air. Its ability to balance and negotiate terrain are especially impressive.
This quirky little robot is small enough to take anywhere, and can be used to sketch out line art images of anything you can draw on screen. Its robotic arm copies your hand movements, though its sketches have a bit of wobble to them – which gives them added character.
We have a hard enough time keeping two balls in the air at the same time, but this robotic contraption is able to deftly juggle five balls at once. It’s even smart enough to detect when a ball is intentionally dropped and resumes without skipping a beat.
One of the coolest concepts we’ve seen on the LEGO Ideas‘ website, Brett Cuviello’s Iron Giant build is simply spectacular, and does a great job replicating the giant robot from Brad Bird’s 1999 animated classic. The 2,000 piece set would have to be pricy, but we desperately want one.
