A New Robot Can Paint a Colossal Wall With One Million Spots

What's art, anyway?

Have you ever looked at your bedroom wall and thought it would look much better with a massive painting on it? But felt too lazy to commit to the laborious task of bringing out the paints and brushes? In this video, YouTube channel Stuff Made Here's Shane Wighton explain how he had the same thought. And as all engineers would do, he decides to spend months building a robot  to paint the wall and as many other walls as he likes instead of spending a couple days of actually doing the painting. 

The engineer is already known for his numerous interesting projects ranging from attaching a chainsaw to the end of a robotic arm to carve out a sculpture to building a robot barber to get his hair cut with scissors, so you could definitely say this project is right up his alley. He states that the project is going to be incredibly challenging, but delves right in anyway, so if you want to see how he succeeded in the project, make sure you watch the video embedded above and, as always, enjoy!
