Sort of like peeing in the snow after being exposed to a strong dose of radiation, these lined “lightdrawings” really glow. But unlike urine, these drawings don’t smell like last night’s asparagus. At least, we assume they don’t.
The Lightdrawing Robot by German designer Nils Voelker creates lit photo designs by moving colored LED lights as a camera shoots a long-exposure shot, creating a drawn effect. There are artists who already do similar, if not totally better looking and more complex light writing work, but this is the first time we’ve seen a robot involved in the process.
