Turntable Drawing Machine !

This is a really cool idea. Robert Howsare, a printmaking MFA student at Ohio University, created this unique drawing machine by reassembling two ordinary turntables for his art project "Drawing Apparatus". Sourcing the turntables from what was lying around his house and from yardsales, Howsare built the device for less than $50. The pitch dials control the size and shape of the drawings to produce images that resemble a Spirograph, whilst a Sharpie mounted on a clothespin provides the ink.
