This cute dancing robot is actually a 3D-printed teapot hooked to an Arduino

Thanks to the wonders of microcomputing and Arduino’s excellent boards, you can now build your own dancing teapot – just like the one in the children’s classic Beauty and the Beast. French computer scientist and DIY enthusiast Paul-Louis Ageneau has crafted an adorable tiny teapot that also happens to dance. Here’s a look at the robot in action: To put together the two-legged mini-robot, Ageneau used 3D-modeling software OpenSCAD to design the various parts for the robot and then 3D-printed them in polylactide. You can check out and download his sketches at this GitHub repository where he has made the corresponding SCAD and STL files…
