Github Project

The Challenge

Can Twitch collaboratively create the next Mona Lisa, Campbell's Soup Cans or The Creation Of Adam?

The Reality

Given a cheap robot arm that's interfaced with Twitch chat can users draw a circle?

The Detail

Setup a MeArm Robot arm and connect it to an Arduino Uno. Create a Nodejs application to fetch chat from a Twitch feed and parse into something like reasonable MeArm movement commands. Push these commands to the arm via the Johhny-Five Arduino API.

Risks and Issues

  • I have no idea what I'm doing or experience of anything related in the chain from arm to desktop. Fire extinguisher may be needed.
  • The MeArm might not actually be able to hold a pencil. In which case the challenge is to wave the arm about a bit.
  • Robot world domination.
