Meet 'GTGraffiti,' The Graffiti-Painting Robot

Graduate students at the Georgia Institute of Technology have built a first ever graffiti-painting robot. See how 'GTGraffiti' uses motion capture tech to mimic the fluidity of human movement.

“The arts, especially painting or dancing, exemplify some of the most complex and nuanced motions humans can make,” said robotics Ph.D. student Gerry Chen . “So if we want to create robots that can do the highly technical things that humans do, then creating robots that can dance or paint are great goals to shoot for. These are the types of skills that demonstrate the extraordinary capabilities of robots and can also be applied to a variety of other applications.”
