Artron: The painter robot

Project Brief: Create a robot employing new technology with full feasibility. 

Problem: The troubles of painting

Time without payoff

Painting walls correctly involve time, dedication, and a large amount of skill. For these reasons, painting has been left to professionals over a matter of days, limiting the interior design market as well as the average DIY person. 

Reaching for possibilities

Statements without compromises

With the painter bot known as "Artron", DIY people and designers can sit back as the robot paints their walls through the powers of airbrushing.
