I'm on board. Let's make stuff, that makes stuff, that makes stuff, that makes stuff. How far down the chain can we go? I think we need a contest!

Hi Caleb!

Thanks for the post!  One of the cool things about this little robot is that it could be used as a CNC platform for more than just drawing.  One person who made their own has plans to turn it into a phage/bacteria printer.  http://www.thingiverse.com/make:54409

Once I get a penlift/Z axis done, it will become significantly more useful.  :)

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
