Could robots save the art of penmanship?

Posted by Cheryl Perkins on May 8, 2017

AxiDraw V3 is coming out this month, and it is capturing penmanship, a writing skill many are thinking may fade into obscurity. Created by Evil Mad Scientist, it’s a pen-plotting robot that serves as a “personal writing and drawing machine.” The machine is $475.

Its website states:  “The AxiDraw is a simple, modern, precise, and versatile pen plotter, capable of writing or drawing on almost any flat surface. It can write with your favorite fountain pens, permanent markers, and other writing implements to handle an endless variety of applications. Its unique design features a writing head that extends beyond the machine, making it possible to draw on objects bigger than the machine itself.”
