Paint and Robots

My cousin David was in town recently on summer break from his studies at the Hochschule fur Gestaltung und Kunst in Zurich. He put me on to these sites - f18institute - they’re the people who built the Stelarc spider robot and have some pretty insane projects, and
Hektor - a groovy swiss group - have designed a digi-input graffiti kit that fits in a single small suitcase and consists of a spray can holder, 2 motors, some belts and cables, a battery, circuit board and laptop. They started graffiti-ing simple text and have since elaborated the fonts, played with multiple-colour output and moved on to oulined versions of william morris prints. They more recently introduced Rita - who draws, erases, and redraws with whiteboard markers…what will they think of next.
