How to make a DIY Drawbot

Have some colored felt tip markers, some self-adhesive velcro and a milk frother? If so, then get ready to make a “robot” that can draw.

During the Minimondi Festival in Parma, Italy, artist Lorezno Bravi experienced a workshop for children to create this amazing little diy toy of sorts. It’s a variation on these drawbots (like these at the 2010 Maker Faire-NY) by researcher, writer, and artist Jonah Brucker-Cohen, PH.D.
