I like seeing old-school implementations with new technology.

I wonder if it's capable of moving to a second line?

By the looks of it, one motor moves the cart along, one controls the how far up and down the page the pen tip is. The last raises and lowers the pen tip.

You could get a second line if the that up/down location on the page mechanism was widened much further. But it looks like the bot itself would not be able to maneuver to a 2nd line by itself.

Very nice!! =D You got talent man. How did you program the robot to do that? Can you give me some instructions? (Just kidding! You can keep it secrete if you want)

Lego typewriters, can movers, launch rifles, what's next?

Wait! I got an idea! To the kitchen!
