honestly, I don't know how this has anything to do with art. It's a "fancy inkjet printer that prints out "paintings" so whats all the hype?

Luc, There have been major advances in recent years in automating every aspect of the picturemaking process, from visual perception to design to the application of paint. I reported on some of those automated systems in earlier blog posts, which can be followed in the links. These advances don't necessarily threaten or replace traditional painters, but they introduce new tools and methods in imagemaking.
