Humanoid robot drawing portraits


Is this the beginning of the end for human artists?

Loved the touch with the quill and dipping into the ink.

In answer to your question - NO! never.

WOW! definitely amazing to see. did you create the video? A little stiff for me though. : )

I didn't create the video Robin. There are a few great robot videos of YouTube, the Toshiba violin playing robot is a nice one to watch.

Although this seems sophisticated, an 18th century automaton by Pierre Jaquet-Droz dipped a quill, shook off the excess and wrote Cogito Ergo Sum in perfect handwriting. It was hardly different from this modern contraption.
