Jackoon: The Painting Robot

Jackoon is a robot that is connected to a camera that allows it to “see” what it is painting. In other words, the Jackoon isn’t just randomly splattering paint, it “knows” what it is doing, in theory. Now, does this make paint better than abstract expressionist artists like Jackson Pollack and Willem de Kooning (who serve as namesake of the Jackoon)? Well, take a look at the picture above and judge for yourself. While you are at it, you might want to see the robo-artist at work in the video below.
If a robot painted a realistic picture from a digital camera, you know what we would call it? A printer. That sort of puts it in perspective, doesn’t it?
