Italian Engineer Develops a Writing Robot Turning any Surface Into a Drawing Canvas

Tuesday, July 24, 2018 - 12:17

Carlo Ratti is an architect and engineer who practices in Italy, has developed an intelligent writing robot that can draw and erase images on any vertical surface, from whiteboards to glass or plaster, transforming it into a screen where drawings, messages or feeds can be projected.

According to the Designboom report, scribit is the result of a long investigation of writing machines developed at CRA, including drone graffiti ‘artists’ and the façade of the future food district at milan’s world expo 2015.

‘Do we really want to add more screens to our lives?’ says carlo ratti, ‘scribit offers up an alternative: a robotic system that draws on any kind of vertical surface, following a primordial act performed by humanity since our first cave graffiti.” with in-built engines, scribit can be installed in less than five minutes and can safely draw, cancel and re-draw new images infinitely, offering the possibility of printing a new drawing on your wall every day.

scribit’s interactive software allows for real-time reproduction of any kind of data while users can use material from online sources since it is always connected to the web. With a circular, aluminum shape, the drawing robot comes with four markers of different colors at its center.
