[Jen Hui Liao] created a device that guides the user into drawing a portrait of themselves. The wrists of the individual are tied to the machine and it is his or her hands that are guided to draw the lines that will eventually form the portrait.
The project started with the observation that nearly everything that surrounds us has been created by machines. It aims to explore the cooperation process of human & machine. Unlike other drawing robots, the user is part of the sketching process.
Liao promises to have more details available soon. Video of the machine after the jump.
