Graphic designer Mostafa El Abasiry created Robosans, a digital font made by a wired control robot. The font was intended to mimic the thick brush strokes used in traditional calligraphy.

To create the font, a robot arm controlled by El Abasiry via computer grips a calligraphy brush and dips the tip in black ink, then draws the letters on paper. Co.Design reports that Robosans was created while he was searching for inspiration about how to develop a calligraphy-style font.

A friend told El Abasiry to go to a local electronics store, where he found a robot arm on the shelf. You can check out the Robosans font and the robot in the video below:
