AxiDraw – Personal Writing and Drawing Machine!


I’m not a big fan of writing out anything and most peopleĀ use digital means to type out all their notes and messages these days anyway. But if you need to be able to hand write something in fancy form and you lack the penmanship to do so, a group called Evil Mad Scientist has a new machine called AxiDraw that might be perfect for you.

AxiDraw – Personal Writing and Drawing Machine!

The machine is a pen plotter that can write or draw on most flat surfaces. It is capable of writing or drawing with pens, markers, fountain pens, and other writing utensils.

The writing head can extend beyond the machine making it able to draw on objects larger than the machine itself. The output from the robot looks handmade compared to items made with an inkjet or laser printer. The software behind the device is a free vector program called InkScape. The travel area of the machine is just a bit larger than US letter and A4 paper sizes and it can also write on smaller items like cards and envelopes.
