Graffiti Robot, Juneteenth, and FASET
Georgia Tech graduate students have built the first graffiti-painting robot system that mimics the fluidity of human movement. GTGraffiti uses motion capture technology to record human painting motions and then composes and processes the gestures to program a cable-driven robot that spray-paints graffiti artwork. The robot does not generate the art itself but works with the human artists, enabling them to achieve more than they could without the robot. Pictured are Gerry Chen, Ph.D. candidate in robotics, and recent computer science graduate Michael Qian, with artwork painted by the GTGraffiti robot. Photo taken June 1 by Rob Felt.
