Graffiti robot

Hektor is the brainchild of Uli Franke, an engineer and Jürg Lehni, a designer/artist. Hektor consists of a couple of motors, a toothed belt, a can holder and a computer. The computer hooks up to the can and motors plotting where the machine will go and spray. It glides across the canvas or wall creating illustrations or type that look almost like they have been hand-rendered. Check out various projects and watch the robot at work. In one of my favorite projects, Hektor captured people's portraits at a Japanese clothing store for a mere $50. Super sweet.
