Up to Much, aka Sandy Noble, is returning to the Mini Maker Faire with his incredible Polagraph, and this year it is even bigger and better than ever!
Simply put, a polagraph is a machine that draws a picture using a normal pen, some motors and some string. Inspired by art created by the AS200 drawbot and Harvey Moon’s drawing machine, draftsmen might recognise this as a primitive, gravity assisted pen plotter. An awesome one. It’s called a polargraph because it uses a dual-polar coordinates system internally, rather than the regular cartesian system we (and computer systems) tend to use.
Sandy runs a very small company called Up To Much that he uses to bring some of my designs to market. He likes machines and mechanisms, furniture and using modern industrial magic to create bespoke technology for individuals.
Don’t the chance to check out Sandy’s new, HUGE, polagraph and some of the breathtaking artwork it creates!
