Robotic Portait Sketches with "Paul the Robot"!

Hello roboticists,

I’ve got another great project to show you all today- this one is an older project created by artist Patrick Tresset and a fantastic showcase of the DYNAMIXEL AX-12A. Patrick used the AX-12A to create a SCARA-style robot arm that, combined with a camera can be used to draw sketches of what the camera sees!

It’s impressive seeing how close the sketch gets to the subject matter, especially for a robot with no formal art training :wink:.

Patrick also publishes a number of followup videos showing the robots drawing more items through their website:
