How To Video: Draw Bot

In this project we use an eccentric weight on a motor to make our drawing bot move (this is the same kind of motor that makes phones vibrate!). Follow along with our collaboration video that we made with the great team over at Amy Poehler's Smart Girls to create your own drawing robot!
