Printer plots to make its mark for Lego

Just had to show this plotter/printer made from Lego because, unlike printers that have gone before, it doesn't lose the whacky element of the Lego world.

Others may have made better plotters from Lego but not with palm trees, horses and a miniature workforce. What's more, its maker is a UK Lego fan called Alan (aka Horseattack) who has not resorted to using Lego's Mindstorms programmable units. He constructed and coded the USB printer himself using analogue motors and sensors, his own printer driver, and lots of Lego bricks and figures.
