New method for making site graphics

 10:08 am on Mar 8, 2012 (gmt 0)

The Fraunhofer Institute usually uses this robot for gauging the quality of new reflective materials, but at the CeBIT show in Hanover, Germany, it used it to draw portraits. The robot took a digital photo of a person, processed it digitally, drew a line-art portrait, showed it off, erased it, then started over again.


I gotta get one of these!

Meh. They did this in the 1800's, and it was a much more interesting looking robot (see "Hugo") :-)

Turns out my PS5 won't interface. Dang!

Just scan a picture, open it in Photoshop and use a few filters to achieve the same result. You can automate this with actions after you've fine tuned the process.

Why is this news? It's a digital camera and a basic robotic arm acting like a 3-D pen plotter.

There are "line drawing portrait" photo-booths at Chuckie Cheese's that do a better job and do it faster, (really --- [youtube.com...] -- portrait shown at 1:40 seconds into video).
