A robot that can paint? It’s not exactly a “what will they think of next” moment. Still, Benjamin Grosser’s Interactive Robot Painting Machine isn’t your standard automaton that does something humans usually do. For example, rather than produce predetermined images like, the Mona Lisa for example, this thing converts ambient sound and the noise it creates with its own gears and mechanisms into different brush strokes and colours. Not that you’d know that from looking at its paintings. Still, it’s definitely a cool thing to look at.
