Did you have a Spirograph toy?  You remember, those plastic gear-like toys that let you draw amazing geometric designs?  Well, you won’t have to expend any effort to draw the designs if you use the Scribbler Drawing Robot from Perpetual Kid.  The Scribbler is actually a kit; you’ll need a hot glue gun and hot glue sticks to build it.  It has a motor inside that shakes and makes the Scribbler dance around on the paper.  The images it produces will be less structured and geometric than those produced by Spirographs, but how many people can say they have an artistic dancing robot?  The Scribbler kit is $26.29.

  2. I loved playing with a Spirograph when I was a kid. I actually searched for modern equivalents last year and bought myself some kits. I’ve not actually used them yet though. I was thinking it would be cool to add designs in my journals. Maybe I’ll do that starting with my 2014 journal. Thanks for the idea!

  3. Hello,

    Don’t be fooled. This is nothing like a Spirograph. This is 4 drawing instruments secured to a vibrating motor. The thing that you see underneath is the fly wheel that is off centered and that’s what makes it vibrate. That’s about the same thing that makes your cell phone vibrate … probably 100 time smaller though.
