In the film "I, Robot", based on the works of Isaac Asimov and touching upon the problems of artificial intelligence, one monologue was most remembered by many viewers. In it, the protagonist, hinting at the soullessness of the machine, asks the android if he, like a man, can write a symphony or create a masterpiece. This scene quickly turned into an internet meme, and its footage became the basis for hundreds of funny photo collages. But in 2017, robots can really paint the picture.

Enthusiasts from the British design studio Those went to Kickstarter with the drawing mechanism project. Their device is called Joto and outwardly resembles an ordinary picture frame with a thin metal "strip" located in the lower corner. This "strip" is the essence of Joto - the "hand" is attached to it, which can create drawings on paper inserted into the frame. The system works very simply: you launch a special application on your smartphone and select the drawing you like in it. Confirm it - and the metal hand starts to move, drawing the picture with ordinary ink (or a graphite pencil rod). If you get tired of the image, you can erase it and create a new one on paper. It turns out something like an endless picture.

Of course, in the application you can draw anything yourself - even with your finger or with a stylus. However, you can select an image from a list of finished artworks - including creations by other Joto users.

The robot can also be used as a reminder board. Or hang motivating quotes on her. Or even tweets. In general, everything is limited only by your imagination.

You can buy Joto for yourself on the project page on Kickstater. Cost - £ 165.>
