Instead of paying $200 for an EggBot (where's the fun in that?) I built a similar device for painting onto small, oval-shaped objects:

Controlled by an Arduino Uno, using a driver board that's eight BS170 MOSFETs, controlling two unipolar 12V stepper motorsE
Most amazing thing: Excluding the Uno (but including the cost of a breadboard AVR) the entire thing was less than $50 in parts!

Yeah, the egg bot was around for a couple of years as a DIY project.  It turned out that a lot of people were interested in the art aspects but not really interested in building one from old floppy parts, so The Kit was born.  Sort of like Arduini itself.

good work, though!

I wrote a program to generate involute gear tooth profiles into SVG (or Gcode,) and then I laser cut them out of acrylic.
