String Art Machine Makes Masterpieces With A Raspberry PI #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Laarco teams up a Raspberry Pi and an Arduino Mega and a bunch of nails to make stunning images. via Raspberry Pi Pod
London-based Laarco have developed a machine to create large works of art using a technique known as “String Art”. This technique uses thousands of nails and a single piece of string to construct a ‘painting’ of a subject. Laarco’s machine, called “Autograph”, uses a Raspberry Pi at it’s core which sends commands to an Arduino Mega fitted with a 3D-printing shield which controls the mechanism.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
