The Legonardo Robot Can Draw and Fashionably Pull Off a Red Sweater

When Daniele Bendettelli came up with the idea of an autonomous drawing machine, the Legonardo robot was born.

Made entirely out of LEGO, the Legonardo robot was inspired by the 18th-century creations of Swiss inventors Pierre Jaquet-Droz and Henri Maillardet. The two Swiss inventors designed several automated (but more mechanical, less electrical) drawing machines called automata.

In case you're worried about Legonardo becoming self-aware and going on a drawing rampage that threatens all of mankind, have no fear. The Legonardo robot is fully controlled by Bendettelli's laptop software. The drawings that Legonardo produces are pre-programmed using the same software. Beyond his very cool drawing abilities, Legonardo also manages to pull off spectacles and a red sweater like it's nobody's business.
