The Sharpie Dotifier

An Overview Of The The Sharpie Dotifier
           The Sharpie Dotifier has limitations and strengths. It can draw stuff out using a sharpie pen and while it does make mistakes from jittery motion from time to time, overall it draws perfectly. However, the limitations do stand out. Not being able to draw a picture larger than 100x50 pixels, or to use more than 1 color seems almost ridiculous in this day and age. But! The Sharpie Dotifier wasn't meant to be cutting edge, rather to show how a robotic arm can be put to intelligent and useful work with some ingenuity.

What To Do Now
           If you built a project similar to this, or exactly like it...kudos to you because it is a lot of work. Moving beyond this project you can use the arm to play games against humans by adding some sensors and different routines through the laptop. Additionally you can add more colored pens for the arm to choose from. On a re-design the sky is the limit of how you can modify this project for automating some task.

           This project met its goals and works very well in drawing out bitmap pictures using a sharpie pen. A lot of cool looking pictures have been drawn by The Sharpie Dotifier as you saw in the data & observations section. I hope you all learned a lot through the documentation of this project write-up and are excited about making your own sharpie dotifier robot arm.
           If you have any further questions, I implore you...don't be shy, take a look at the forums or ask a question there. I check them out regularly and love getting comments & questions.
