Portrait drawing robot


The robot can draw your face but does it make that an artist? Sit on the bench and put on the cord, so that you give the robot the start signal. Sit quietly and smile if you like. Please remain seated for about 5 minutes. The final image appears out of the slot. Take it home with you it should get a place of honor!
The Rnul portrait robot now belongs to the collection of robots of the DASA museum in Dortmund.

The system is entirely build in Max and has different parts like facetracking, automated brightness and contrast of the picture, analyzing a matrix to control the drawing pen, DMX control for the cutting and turning the paper roll.
