Jackoon Pair at Gizmodo Gallery 2009

Jackoon and Jackoon v.2

Don’t worry you are not seeing double, Jackoon the painting robot has a new friend! Jackoon v.2 is an other hacked toy with a robotic arm made from Jackoon’s blue print. Jackoon v.2 made its debut at The Gizmodo Gallery exhibit and a fine job he did.

Art bots

The two artbots teamed up to make the paintings of a few subjects including one of the king of all robots R2D2!

The robots used this image as a reference and painted the composition with gray, orange, yellow and black.

2/3 of the way into the painting, I made an outline of where R2D2 was located on the painting. You can see the subtle contour of r2’s body on the robotic painting. I was really happy with the resulting painting.
