The organic flow and subtly of a master calligrapher’s hand has been captured by roboticist Seiichiro Katsura of Keio University with his Calligraphy robot. Going beyond typical motion capture methods, Seiichiro’s robot also captures applied pressure and other gestural information, allowing the device to render near-perfect replicas of recorded brush strokes with the system.
