pfffft! My robot could paint that

Thanks to the fine folks at BoingBoing, we discovered Ben Grosser and his interactive robotic painting machine. No, that’s not a painfully obvious explanation – that’s simply what he calls it. The device is better explained by watching the video below and there’s plenty more about the making of and Grosser’s philosophizing about it at his website.

“Because of its interactive nature, the machine can function in multiple contexts. In an exhibition or gallery context, the system listens to whatever sounds come its way. This could include listening to visitors speaking directly into the mic, eavesdropping on nearby conversations, or when nobody is there, listening to itself make a painting. In this video, the machine only had itself to listen to.”
