SADbot – The Robot with a Mood Disorder

from IEEE Spectrum:

Outside of New York City’s Eyebeam studio, an artist’s hub dedicated to the convergence of art and technology, two women pause to see a pen doodling across a canvas behind a window. When they touch little circles on the glass, the pen changes direction.

“What’s this?” they ask. Then they read the description. This is a SADbot.

SADbot, or Seasonally Affected Drawing Robot, is a solar-powered, interactive drawing machine created by Eyebeam artists Dustyn Roberts and Ben Leduc-Mills. The contraption was on display this month at Eyebeam’s Window Gallery in Chelsea.
