In Brief

The Motion Copy System can identify and store complex brush strokes, enabling a robot to reproduce them as if it were a human.

A group of researchers from Keio University have developed the Motion Copy System, which can identify and store complex brush strokes, enabling a robot to accurately reproduce calligraphy. This means that a tradition that has been learned and passed down by hand can now be performed by a robot.

DigInfo reports that the system stores calligraphy movements by using a brush with a separate handle and tip. A motor is attached to the brush, so the motion and force of the demonstrator can be recorded as digital data and reproduced.
