Students from the École nationale supérieure de création industrielle, have created this (Ensci) have created a robot that captures movement using a Microsoft Kinect and turns what it "sees" into a work of art.
At Futur en Seine in France, ENSCI Engineering school presented the results of a year of reflection on robots, their role in manufacturing and their place in our daily lives. This exposition was from 13 to 16 June this year.
Of the projects presented by ENSCI and its FabLab, one in particular captured the spotlight. Each visitor who wished could be "captured" by a small robot based on the project designed by students Paul Couderc, Xavier Dufour Thimothé Montoy. From a Microsoft Kinect device that was capturing the image at time T, each person was reproduced by an ABB robot with a black felt pen.
The concept was a great success with visitors, who selected it to receive the Audience Award. This award recognized the robot and at the same time the work of students from ENSCI School.
