Drawing Robot: Artpainter

117980869 39Df6A80C1

Eric Rautio made this drawing robot that takes information that people give it over the web and draws it out for them. The drawing implement is a sumi brush that is hacked together to connect to a reservoir above and to the right of the robot.

Artpainter stands for adaptive resonance theory painter, also known as the painting machine. This device takes user input through a website and local tablet pc’s, which it then “learns” through system of neural networks. The machine then improvises using what it has learnt.
