We have rebuilt the Makeblock XY Stage to make a Drawing Robot, it was built with 50cm*50cm length sliding rail, the timing belt, two stepper motors, a stepper motor driver, and a micro-controller Arduino.
The previous version of the Makeblock XY Stage can only draw the pictures described in the program of Arduino. But now it can draw the picture sending from the Smart phone by Bluetooth at any shape.
We have developed a special APP for Andriod devices to control the painting robot. You can send a picture from the phone or you can take a picture by the phone and then send it to the robot by Bluetooth. After that the robot will draw what you send.
