Hello World! A Lego Printer that Works

Student: Nikita

Watch the video below. The printer in the video was built from scratch by Squirrelfantasy, a member of the B3ta forums, which is a geeking engineering group online. Here’s his description from the YouTube page:
Lego felt tip 110″ printer connected to an Apple Mac. This is not a kit you can buy and does not use mindstorms. I designed/built/coded it all from scratch including analog motor electronics, sensors and printer driver, the USB interface uses a “wiring” board.
Use the above description to write a news story about this videoclip. Include information such as what do you like about it and what skills would be involved in building a printer with Legos. Also, tell readers what "Hello World" means. Hint: Consult this Wikipedia page for a definition. Remember to include the five W's of a news story: who, what, when, where, and why.

Embed the code for the video into your post. Ms. Moorhead can show you how.
