Robot Artist Draws Portraits

by Paul Strauss

This humanoid robot holds a pen in its hand and can draw an image of any person who stands in front of it.

Artist Robot by Sylvain Calinon

Created by robotic researcher Sylvain Calinon, the robot recognizes when there’s a face in its field of view, then snaps a digital photo and extracts the major characteristics of their visage. Once that’s done, the robot turns itself into an X/Y plotter, picking up an old-fashioned quill pen and gradually filling in the details of a portrait.

I think it would be really cool to set up a bunch of these in a row, creating different styles of art using ink, pastel, oils and acrylics. Sylvain, are you listening?
