ASCII Drawing Machine

For this assignment I wanted to make the invisible visible. Doing so by translating the ASCII characters while typing on the computer into a drawing. In order to do this I created a ASCII grid, each character representing a position within this grid.

Using Processing I wrote a small program who send these grid positions to an Arduino which then translates these positions to the movement of two servos. Using a pencil and a counter weight the installation starts to drawing.
