The EggBot Original Deluxe Edition (Intl) is a friendly 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). It is super adjustable and is designed to draw on all kinds of things that are normally "impossible" to print on.
Not just eggs but ping pong balls, light bulbs, mini pumpkins, and even things like wine glasses - with a bit of work. In the photos, you can see just a few of the things that you can make with an EggBot: Incredible personalized golf balls, Christmas ornaments, light bulbs, and (yes) eggs.
The EggBot chassis is made of tough fiberglass, with integrated heat sinks for the included motors. The pen and egg motors are high-torque precision stepping motors, and the pen lift mechanism is a quiet and reliable servo motor.
The EggBot kit is easy to assemble in an hour or so, and only requires a couple of basic tools like miniature Phillips-head and flathead screwdrivers. You'll also need a reasonably modern computer with an available USB port (Mac, Windows, or Linux), plus internet access to download assembly instructions and necessary software.
The standard pen holder included with the EggBot kit is designed to fit various art pens including Sharpie Ultra-Fine Point pens. However, it can actually fit almost any pen of similar size. If you want to use a pen that doesn't fit, the pen holder is made of wood and can be enlarged to suit your taste.
