Robot Calligraphy

“Researchers at Keio University have developed a motion capture robot that can record and reproduce the entire velocity of an expert calligrapher’s brush strokes. This could lead to improvements to the way robots learn skills, and lead to a pretty handy robo-surgical helper someday.

The robot reads the “master’s” hand motions, the speed of the hand motions, and even the pressure of the hand motions. “That means that one day, Pollocks could be painted from hard drives, or surgeries could be performed by Johnny 5.”
