The Original Egg-Bot Kit The Eggbot is an open-source art robot that can draw on spherical or egg-shaped objects from the size of a ping pong ball to that of a small grapefruit-- roughly 1.25 to 4.25 inches in diameter (3 - 10 cm). The kit is based on the original design by Bruce Shapiro, dating back to 1990. Our version, the "Egg-Bot 2.0," is a modern and friendly update, designed with the assistance of Bruce and his team. The Eggbot is super adjustable, and is designed to draw on all kinds of things that are normally "impossible" to print on.

I had just learned how to control two stepper motors, and needed some way of demonstrating just how interesting this capability is.
