Jackoon Artbot

waspsmOscar D Torres is a graduate student that has created a robot that paints named Jackoon.

The robot is named after Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning. You can see the similarities to the artists in the painting here called Lemon Wasp.

Although the paintings look random, the robot uses a camera mounted on the ceiling to help tell it where to paint.

Jackoon is currently part of the ITP Spring Show.
