Make Your Own Drawbot

Lorenzo Bravi

As we enter the third straight week of rainy weather, my mind envisages what it will be like when my already restless toddler is old enough to catch a serious case of cabin fever. It ain't pretty. Having a repertoire of rainy day projects is a great asset in times like these, and this simple one is an excellent addition to the stack.

If you used to draw with Spirographs as a kid, then this cool little project will surely take you back to those halcyon days. Italian artist Lorenzo Bravi came up with this design, and it is amazingly simple. Besides some markers and self-adhesive velcro, the main component is a milk-frother, used when making cappuccino. These can be purchased at most kitchen stores or at Ikea for a few bucks. Words do not do this justice, so let this video show you how the magic happens.
