The Art "Robot" takes an idea similar to the drawing bots of using junk to make drawing 'robot'; then kicks it up a gear. The use of the ice-lolly stick push it further into the area of reusing materials (instead of my broken propellors - I wish I had thought of the lolly sticks). The cork for adding weight to a light motor is clever.
Have a look at http://www.instructables.com/id/Art-Robot/ for more details of how they built theirs.
Art Robots are not just being made from 'junk' another curated post from Primary Robots & Coding has Lego and Scratch being used to make drawing robots.
I plan to incorporate some of the ideas from Art "Robot" in the plans for the next improvements in the drawing bots plans. So watch this space.
