Zen gardening is well known to be the single most dangerous kind of rock-and-sand gardening. I can’t even imagine how many minor blisters all that slow, peaceful sand raking has caused through the thousand of years. No longer, says the Harford Hackerspace in Baltimore. Their submission to the Red Bull Creation contest puts the design part of the process into a Flash and leaves the “gardening” to a CNC drawing machine. Watch it in action, and then watch the second video to see how it erases the previous sand design.
You can see there are several MakerBotted brackets and connectors in the machine. Awesome! We want to see that sucker draw our “M” logo! Check out more detail on their page for how they worked the Bullduino into their design, which is required in the contest.
