The Eggbot

Egg Bot

The Eggbot is an open-source art robot that can draw on spherical or egg-shaped objects from 4 – 10 cm in diameter and is designed to draw on all kinds of things that are normally “impossible” to print on. Not just eggs but golf balls, light bulbs and even wine glasses.

Egg Bot

The Eggbot software allows you to control the ‘bot from within Inkscape — a freeware illustration program — on Mac, Windows, or Linux computers, by drawing an image directly, tracing a photograph, or importing designs from other programs.

Egg Bot

You can also control the Eggbot directly from many other programs that have the ability to send serial commands over a USB port and because the project is open source, users are also free to hack and re-purpose the device as they see fit.
