A celestial mapping robot is the result of a collaboration between architect Carlo Ratti and artist Olafur Eliasson.
Dubbed Scribit, the high-tech gadget can scale any vertical surface, producing a precise illustration of digital information it is receiving. Moreover, the mapping robot remembers its trajectory and later, can double up on its path to produce a more striking and stark contrast between pen and wall. Carlo Ratti and Olafur Eliasson's creation is completely programmable. It can, for example, be made to map the position of the sun in the sky.
The Scribit mapping robot is also considered to be one of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns in history. The product is not only incredibly interesting in terms of algorithmic makeup but it is also geared toward sparking conversations about climate change and energy use.
