Now I could see this little guy let’s say at a teaching facility, creating drawings for use later in instructional classes. He actually takes your picture, so there is no need to sit and pose as is done when a human is creating your portrait.
Technology and robotics are getting smarter every day. He actually talks and carries on a bit of conversation to get your name for the portrait too, and voice is not bad and looks like he works pretty fast! BD
The Portraitist Robot recognizes human faces in its surroundings and extracts relevant characteristics from them. By using its uncanny artistic talent, it then draws portraits of the participants from the captured images by converting them into vector art and by using inverse kinematics to control the robot's arm.
