A machine helps users draw with their eyes shut, guiding a pen in their hand and using computer vision to track their face and generate a line drawing.
The ‘Blind Self Portrait‘ machine, a collaboration between Kyle McDonald and Matt Mets, helps you draw a picture of yourself with your eyes shut. At the intersection of art and technology, the machine lets the user be both the subject and the artist. While their eyes are closed, a moving platform guides a pen in their hand to draw a self portrait. Computer vision is used to track their face and generate a line drawing. Check out the machine in action in the video below:
