Senseless Drawing Bot is a 4-wheeled graffiti machine, with a pendulum arm, arduino and spray cans to create random strokes as it moves up and down the gallery space. This unusual robot, designed by So Kanno and Takahiro Yamaguchi serves a single purpose – to draw senselessly. Well, really it uses a can of spray paint, so it should be called the “Senseless Painting Bot,” but I won’t be a stickler on the details since I wish I had this thing as a pet. Watch the bot as it churns out some of its senseless art:
I love how its arm gesticulates wildly as it rolls its way along the wall, painting abstract images. I wonder how long it would need to keep going for before it actually randomly spelled a word. It’s amazing how something so senseless can still be so intriguing, don’t you think?
