The Drawing Machine: Harvey Moon (video)

Robotics Technology

Harvey Moon‘s Drawing Machine is is not just a controllable pen attached suspending it over a page, it’s a tool for making beautiful artwork. Taking its cues from computer data, the Drawing Machine can reproduce any digitized picture or photograph, and the programmer’s touch introduces noise in the system. The results are more akin to print-making in that every creation is unique with its own idiosyncrasies. Filmed at Maker Faire Bay Area 2011.
