Lego Hello World


“Lego felt tip 110” printer connected to an Apple Mac. This is not mindstorms, I designed/built/coded it all from scratch including analog motor electronics, sensors and printer driver, the USB interface uses a “wiring” board. FAQ: Track name? “Christopher and Raphael just popper Shinichi Osawa distortion disco edit” FAQ: How long did this take? Hard to say, maybe 3 weeks working evenings. FAQ: You’re a student and this is a university project? I’m not a student, this is just a hobby project. FAQ: Just a remake of the 1092a? No, I’d never seen the 1092a until now. However some of the parts came from a 8094 kit amongst others many years ago. It is made to my own design, but I acknolwedge influences and the great work of the official lego designers ! FAQ: Does this use mindstorms? Nope, wiring demo board + homemade analog electronics and sensors. FAQ: DPI? Dots per inch? Approx 75 DPI FAQ: PPM? Pages per minute? Not even 1! I sped things up a little in the video editing to keep it interesting to watch :) FAQ: Helvetica? Yes of course, my respect to those who noticed :) FAQ: Full color version/more colours? Originally I was going to do 3 colour version, but I had to simplify as only have 4 lego motors. FAQ: Open source, schematics etc? Yes, I’ll try to get around to this soon. Unfortunately I’m pretty busy at work at moment and documenting this project to a good standard will take a while. Sorry :( FAQ: Wrote your own driver? Yes, uses standard Mac OS print mechanism. FAQ
