Art Robots: Machines that DrawPete ProdoehlRasterWeb!
What is an “Art Bot”!?I consider an Art Bot any sort of robotic-type device that creates art...The art in question can be music, orperformance, or anything that ﬁts into thearts, but I tend to focus on robots thatdraw, because drawing is...AWESOME!
What is an “Art Bot”!?But I’m not talking about printers... printersprint things, and while that’s ﬁne, often ArtBots work with the same drawing toolshumans would use, such as pens, pencils,chalk, markers, or even cans of spray paint.Welcome to the world of... Drawbots!
