Nice try but no.

Is there no one who can code their robot to drive along these clearly intersecting spiral paths?

Make one black square white, (double white squares). Move Bot with QTI sensors CW until it hits double white; turn slightly to the right to pick up the next sequence. Repeat until center.

Bot can probably be made to move to the next nearest square easily enough.

Bot has a compass and/or giro such that it knows it's heading when started.

Bot follows the circle it's on, next nearest square by next nearest square, until it's heading is the same as when it started. One revolution is then complete.

Then bot veres off to left or right, depending which way we are circling, until it find the next inner circle.

Repeat.

Actually, thinking about it, it's no more weird than all those spirals we see in the seeds of a Sunflower.

You see, in reality there are no circles in that picture. Or spirals. They are just constructs of our minds. Why do we expect to see either?

Very cool!
maybe we could combine it with the new Parallaxy accessories for a Web controlled interactive painter

Maybe Erco could modify his flame thrower to spray chalk instead!

I think that Erco must see that: https://sprayprinter.com/order/

I think that the only have to do is to add a ColorPAL sensor on his flame thrower and will have a Spray printer!!!!

The main idea behind this, is that when the color sensor detects a color in the walls surface (projected from an LCD projector) the valve push the spray to release the paint ...
