Industrial robot sketches human portrait


Gizmag reports on a robot-turned-artist:

"Pity the poor industrial robot. It spends countless hours toiling away at mindless manual labor, never getting a chance to explore its creative side. Well, next month at the CeBIT digital technology trade show, one such robot will get the opportunity. When visitors to the Fraunhofer display take a seat on a provided stool, one of the company's industrial robots will create a pencil sketch of them, then hold up the finished product for everyone to see."

Thanks, Kohalakat

Perhaps now we know how orchestra musicians felt when synthesizers came along!
