Can doodling be an art form? Will robots rule the world in the future? Am I going to be involved with more sophisticated robots in Belgium?
Do robots posses consciousness? What is the meaning of life? How depressed is Marvin?
These are all great mysteries to me. So is the Belgian government. As I wait for my temporary ID card, ready to face the gigantic bureaucracy connected to EU I keep on building things that help me reflect on the past, present and future…
This is drawn by a nice little robotic kit that I built this morning. It is called Doodling Robot which is part of the Fun Mechanics Kit which is produced by 4m. It is not robot in the sense of a programmable robot but by using a few principles of physics and an AA batter it can create some colorful circles in addition to some stranger line patterns (by arranging the ‘legs’ in a different setup). It is also to produce chaotic patterns by placing its tiny electric motor in a different slot.
If you want to see other fun stuff you can to GB Shopping Center (Winkelcentrum) pay a visit to the Collecta store where they sell all kind of robotic kits, plastic models, wooden models and things that can make you spend hours and hours…
This is how it all started:
