The developers over at Piccolo are working on a CNC-bot designed to draw small pictures, and which could be reprogrammed for other purposes. According to the developers, “We are currently refining the Piccolo prototype into an open-source design that is simple, quick to assemble, and easy to use, and is entirely composed of digitally manufactured components and inexpensive off-the-shelf hardware.”
The project uses both the Arduino and Processing libraries and is currently in the development stage. You can find more information and register for project updates at piccolo.cc.
We’ll be watching for updates on this promising project.
