CNET | Fraunhofer’s portrait robot at CeBIT

March 25, 2012

CNET | Robots are widely used now, and they’re only spread even farther into daily life. The sci-fi future may be closer than you think. The Fraunhofer Institute usually uses this robot for gauging the quality of new reflective materials, but at the CeBIT show in Hanover, Germany, it used it to draw portraits. The robot took a digital photo of a person, processed it digitally, drew a line-art portrait, showed it off, erased it, then started over again.
