Working Printer Made of Lego Game

A strange line heard working printer made of Lego game I know Lego this word made you to think again Yes a working printer is being created by Lego game by a young child think again what i said a child. Well making a fully functional printer made of Lego totally freezes anyone’s mind but it happened a brilliant 14 years old boy Leon Overweel known for his previous brilliant creation of a Skype controlled Lego car which allows anyone around the globe to control that car via internet connection. As this thing clears you that his name is not new to us if we see in the Lego creation. Well let’s talk about his latest creation which he made by using NXT controller with a Lego Mindstorms kit.

This little Genius was able to create a device that uses a felt tip pen to create a 50*50 pixel image. Well the printer he created is called PriNXT. He I mean Overweel used three different motors to control the printer’s head and to lift the lower felt pen. While seeing the printer you notice the series of pullies and gears to provide the power to make everything functional. Even three different sensors are installed to detect touch, color, and light. The touch and color sensors are working as a guide the printer whether when and where to start drawing and the light detector is helping to the pen.

Well I salute this little genius for what he is trying to make, first a skype controlled Lego Car and now a fully functional Lego Computer printer. Well I must tell you that this printer is not fast at all but it creates a fabulous result which is enough to impress others.
