A while back, maker Ivan Miranda built himself a robot which could write words in the sand. He’s back to build an upgraded version of the machine which can draw much faster than the previous one. It uses 50 mini servos to doodle, two mini tanks to drive, and Arduino Mega controllers for its digital brains.
THE BEST Beach
Going to the beach and eating pepperoni pizza are two of our favorite things, so this microfiber beach blanket makes perfect sense to us. While you can’t actually eat this 5-foot diameter pepperoni pie, you can always use your phone to have a pizza delivered while you sunbathe on it.
Artist Jimmy Swift spent hours getting beat up by the waves and sand to paint this pointy rock off the coast of South Goa, India to look like an angry great white shark. It makes for amazing photo opps for visitors, though smacking into a rock might be just as dangerous as swimming with sharks.
An ingenious way to protect valuables at the beach. Simply drill the Beach Vault into the sand and load your items inside. It can even be screwed through a hole in the included beach towel. Nobody will know it’s there, and you can rest easy while you go for a swim or sunbathe.
Colin Furze wanted to see how deep he could dig on a beach, and figured he could go 10 feet without hitting water. So what’s an enterprising mad inventor to do? You build a beach hut with a basement. Keep an eye on Colin’s channel on 6/15 to see the finished build.
