The painter robot Scribit by Carlo Ratti

The Italian architect Carlo Ratti has created a robot that, connected to the internet, is able to draw and delete images on any surface. The small robot, called Scribit, allows users to customize their walls with digital works. It will be presented at this year’s Milan Design Week, which will be held from April 16th to 25th 2018.

By requiring only two nails and a power outlet to be fully functional, the device can be installed in less than five minutes. Use integrated engines to move, draw, delete and redraw new content for an unlimited number of times. Users can create new content or upload an existing visual file from the Internet, which will then be designed independently by Scribit. The robot is able to draw on any surface: walls, blackboards, glass and plaster.

The digital device operates on a two-axis plane, moving up and down with two cables hanging from a vertical wall. After moving to the desired point, Scribit then uses markers to reproduce the content dictated by the user. These signs can then be reversed by the cancellation process of Scribit, which works similarly.

The robot is also capable of reproducing any type of data in real time, including notes, messages, images and graphics. Once the user sends their digital information to the device, the plotter instantly replays it.
