Robot Can Sketch Or Paint

Last year a successfully-funded Kickstarter campaign turned the idea of a robot painter into reality. Now WaterColorBot 2.0 is available. When hooked up to a computer it can recreate any vector artwork file as a pencil or pen drawing or in watercolors.

At $295 it’s quite pricey for what’s something of a novelty product, though credit to the creators for noting an unusual selling point: when your child produces their first painting, you can scan it to a computer and then make a series of almost identical copies so no grandparent, uncle or aunt has to miss out on a near-original.

Here’s the original Kickstarter pitch video:
