Spinning Replicator

Published on October 21, 2014

The Spinning Replicator is a copy machine. It can scan an illustration and draw a copy of it without any kind of programming, just littleBits, LEGO elements and a marker. It moves like a gramophone, with two discs that rotates and a lever that travels from center to border.

The lever has two sides, one has a light sensor and the other has a marker attached to a servo. When the light sensor is over a dark area, the marker goes down, when the sensor finds a bright area, the marker goes up. When the copy is complete, the roller switch is released, the motors stops and the cloudBit send me a phone notification.
