If you are planning to redecorate your living or working space this might be interesting for you. This little device has possibilities that are in reverse proportions with its size. I bet you’ll be delighted to meet Scribit, a robot that can paint on large surfaces, such as walls of your home or office with computer speed and accuracy.
The mini printer robot allows users to draw with a great accuracy on the walls, whiteboards, pieces of glass, or plastered drywall. It can create massive artworks on the walls using the CMYK markers within its design, accurately tracking coordinates (like a delta 3D printer, but without the Z axis). So, Scribit’s use is quite wide and it depends on the user’s creativity and needs.
The little printer with great possibilities is an invention of Carlo Ratti.
“We are totally deluged with information, and spend too much of our non-sleeping time in front of one form or another of a digital screen – TV, desktop computer, laptop, tablet or phone. Do we really want to add more screens to our lives? Scribit offers up an alternative: a robotic system that draws on any kind of vertical surface, following a primordial act performed by humanity since our first cave graffiti,” says Ratti, founding partner of CRA and director of the MIT Senseable City Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
If you get a chance to visit the Milan Design Week you can personally meet Scribit there and get convinced in his possibilities.
