WaterColorBot Paints Digital Artwork in Watercolor

by Hazel Chua

Sometimes, I get the feeling that digital artwork lacks the personal touch that you find in traditional artwork. You can’t really see the strokes the artist made on the canvas, for one, and any errors or misplaced strokes are quickly edited out.

If you’re a fan of watercolor art and want to get the best of both worlds, then you might want to consider getting the WaterColorBot.

Watercolor Bot

The WaterColorBot was conceived by 12-year-old Sylvia Todd in collaboration with Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories. It’s basically a robot that turns digital vector artwork into actual watercolor paintings. All you need to do is feed the bot with a digital file of the image, and it will then set out to work to create a watercolor replica of that image.

The ‘bot is dubbed as a “friendly and educational art robot” and has high potential for STEM and STEAM education, especially as a means to get younger people interested in robotics and technology.

The WaterColorBot is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where you can get one of your very own with a minimum pledge of $295(USD).
