the robot - signed, limited edition
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!
This SIGNED, LIMITED EDITION of 500 Robot kit includes a Basswood plate autographed by artist and master engineer Robert Sabuda in acid-free, archival ink.
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.
This SIGNED, LIMITED EDITION of 500 Gambler kit includes a Walnut plate autographed by artist and master engineer Robert Sabuda in acid-free, archival ink.
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.
This SIGNED, LIMITED EDITION of 500 Gambler kit includes a Cherry plate autographed by artist and master engineer Robert Sabuda in acid-free, archival ink.
