Boffins come up with a machine that makes you an artist

Forces perfect brush-strokes

 

Boffins at the RCA show have come up with a device that makes you an instant artist, as it helps you make perfect pen strokes by guiding your hands.

The Self-Portrait Machine, as it is called, actually takes a picture of the person sitting behind it, and then helps the person draw it, step by step. The machine itself resembles a desk with two auxiliary mechanical hands that are attached to the human hands using them.

We must admit that the resulting pictures look pretty great and whatever you may think, it’s still art, so stroll on over here where you can see some photos and videos of the machine in action.
