HELIOBOT is an autonomous solar-powered machine for digital manufacturing, on-site. A sun-tracking system is used to focus solar rays and produce thermal energy to heat, burn, and cut materials. The robot has freedom to move in two axes and operate over the material with almost no size limitations, just powered by the sun.
