The TwitLEDs project by Myra and Jean-Claude Wippler (daughter and father) has come to a conclusion. It was great. I’ll just summarize by pointing to the six posts on the Jee Labs weblog describing the technical details, and some pictures and videos, showing the results.

Here you can see the finished TwitLEDs robot:

This is the, ehm… print head?

Dsc 1749

And last but not least, some videos. First a trial run for the print mechanism:

Next, a trial run for the vehicle, trying to stay out of trouble:

  1. Brilliant… It’s a very philosophical little bot isn’t it :-)

    • The keyword she ended up using was “why” – it produced lots of interesting tweets (given that there is absolutely no context).

  2. Wow, what a cool project. Great idea and fantastic outcome.

  3. Very cool project. Inventive idea to LED-print on glow-paint.
