Robert Sabuda hat mit Da Vinci’s Drawmaton einen von Da Vinci inspirierten, programmierbaren, mechanischen Holzroboter entwickelt, der zeichnen kann. Das Dingen gibt es in verschiedenen Variationen bei Kickstarter.
For the longest time it has been the dream of the Leonardo da Vinci Robot Society to bring one of the Renaissance master’s creations back to life for the world to enjoy. Da Vinci’s most famous robot, the mechanical knight built over 500 years ago, was able to perform several tasks and was even rumored to be able to draw. When we met mechanical paper engineer extraordinaire Robert Sabuda, also a huge da Vinci fan, it was a match made in heaven! Through careful research of da vinci’s original drawings and plans in the Codex Atlanticus, da Vinci’s notebook dealing with robotics, Sabuda and his team have finally unraveled the mechanics and brought the machine into the 21st century!
