learning to draw

The idea of building a draw bot has been lingering at the back of my mind for some years now, and the final kick to start building one came in the form of an invitation to show some of my work at a futurelab conference.

The basic idea is to draw seismographic patterns that are based on semantic analyses of online conversations that are related to the topics being discussed at the conference itself. And reading the sentence i just wrote i have to admit: there are still a few things to think about.

But whatever will be drawn, i need a robot that does the drawing live at the conference, and this robot is already in the awakening. So for all your geek porn needs, may i present you: the honsbots first attempt at drawing some basic patterns.
