The robot that draws

P1020178.JPG

In case you were unaware, you're completely irrelevant. Worthless, good for nothing, redundant...you and the entire human race.

Robots can pretty much do anything now. They can bake cookies, fight like Jedis, juggle better than you can and fill in the hopeless void for childless couples.

Just in case we weren't terrified enough, they've now decided to provide the future robot-controlled world with creepy pictures of our very own soon-to-be extinct faces. Artist, and android enabler, Patrick Tresset has trained a robot to take portraits of humans, based on his abilities.

The sketcher is worryingly described as an "obsessive drawing entity" and is currently working at Tender Pixel in London before going on to charge upsetting amounts of money to tourists on the Southbank (probably).

Real artists, and the general human race, can breathe a small sigh of relief though. Proof of exactly why is directly below...
