TRINAMIC support for open source yields Arduino-based techno-art installation
Hamburg-based software engineer and Android enthusiast Alex Weber has ported Der Kritzler (the Scribbler) to TRINAMIC’s open source Arduino Shield TOS-100. Der Kritzler is a techno-art installation that draws images on windows or walls using a TMC2660 motion controller, which is the key component of the TOS-100 board. Built with a stepper motor, two suction cups, a power supply, some screws and bolts–plus the TMC2660-based motion control Arduino shield–Der Kritzler can be programmed to transform bitmaps into ink drawings on large surfaces.
