Martha Vader – A MakerBot sings the imperial march and makes a Darth Vader Head

We got black ABS plastic into the MakerBot store. Now you can make black or white objects with your MakerBot. We had this plastic custom manufactured and it’s beautiful, extrudes great, and has a really nice silky sheen to it. Marius and Philipp of the Metalab in Vienna take responsibility for this wonderful robot stunt. They have been visiting and they set up the MakerBot named Martha Vader to sing the imperial march and make a Darth Vader Head. The sound is coming from the stepping of the steppers. Each step of the motor creates a square wave and when you line them up at the right speeds, music is possible!
