Meet the Egg-Bot

This is pretty awesome:  an assemble-yourself perhipheral that allows you to draw on spherical/ellipsoidal/other objects:  the egg-bot! 


Plug it in to your USB port, render your drawing in a freeware illustration program, and voila!  And it’s open-source:  both hardware and software. 

There are so many interesting things that could be done with the egg-bot:  sketching grid lines on ellipsoids to illustrate parametric surfaces; investigating how projection affects map-making; graphing closed-curves on golf balls; creating the greatest Easter Eggs in human history.

There’s got to be some stimulus money out there I can use for this.
