Girl Creates Watercolor ‘Bot’

30 Jul

A 12-year-old girl has created a robotic device that turns computer scribblings into watercolor paintings:

“Sylvia Todd, a 12-year-old with a passion for robots, has created what she calls the WaterColorBot. It’s a robot that looks a little like a 3D printer. As its name implies, however, it creates works of art with watercolor paint instead of plastic.

So, how does it work? It’s quite simple really. The user connects the robot to their PC via USB and powers up the included RoboPaint software. From there, the machine paints whatever the user creates in the software.”
