Poem Bot

  • litSPARK tent 200 Fayetteville Street Raleigh, NC, 27601 United States (map)

"My Poet, My Poem & I" poem dispenser is putting poems by great American poets—as well as the NCSU Libraries’ own bookBot—into the hands of passersby. After selecting whether you want a poem by a human or the bookBot, the dispenser prints out a poem on a pocket-sized piece of paper, and even adds photographs of you and the poet. The poem dispenser is the brainchild of Digital Research and Scholarship Librarian Markus Wust. Built in the NCSU Libraries Makerspace, Wust’s dispenser combines a Raspberry Pi 3, a thermal printer and a small touch screen. The wooden housing of the dispenser was laser-cut in the Makerspace, as well.
