The Portraitist Robot: Vincent VanBot

Sylvain Calinon’s creation, the Robotic Portrait Artist, has received a makeover. Check out its sweet new mustache and beret! It truly has the look of an artist.

This bot is able to recognize human faces and extract relevant characteristics from them. Then, it draws portraits of captured images by converting them into vector art.  The produced result is better than anything I could put down onto paper. Then again, I’m not programmed to draw. If I was, I’d be Bob Ross.
