Leonardo da Vinci's Drawmatons are mechanical wooden machines operated by hand, just as it was in the master's day, by turning a small gear knob which activates a larger gear.
The large gear rotates a read-only assembly which sends information down to the Robot's arm and hand via cams called Programming Petals.
Put any drawing tool into the Robot's hand, place a piece of paper into the draw area, slowly turn the small gear knob and viola! The Robot draws a single line picture!
The second available design of da Vinci's Drawmaton is the Gambler. Part of the Drawmaton team clearly had a slightly spookier vision of the Renaissance Master's work in mind (his original Robot Knight, which the Drawmaton is based on, must have been a bit of a fright when activated!).
The Gambler has a more detailed hand and, like the Robot model, can draw an infinite number of single line pictures.
Three different colors of wood are used in the Gambler kit giving this machine an eerie echo from the past! The 8-layer, laser cut medallion of the the Gambler adds the final touch.
And when's the last time you saw a skeleton draw a picture?!
The third design of da Vinci's Drawmaton is the Slayer. The 10-layer, laser cut medallion pays homage to the Slayer's ultimate prey, the dragon!
Rich in history from the time of Leonardo, the Slayer is the closest in theme to da Vinci's original Robot Knight from over 500 years ago.
The Slayer has the most detailed drawing hand of all three designs and is based on meticulous research of what a knight's gauntlet glove would look like during the time of Leonardo.
But don't think Slayer is only capable of sketching his elusive prey! All three designs of da Vinci's Drawmaton can draw an endless number of pictures.
