can do a lot of cool things. They can explore the depths of a volcano, or the
far reaches of the solar system. But what about the less important tasks in
life? As it turns out robots can fritter their time away too. One robot is
doing a much better version of what most humans would consider arts and crafts.
The robot is known as Mug Marker and it is the brainchild of Don McRae. Mug
Marker spends his days, not too surprisingly, decorating mugs for use in the hot
drink dreams of its makers.
interesting thing about the robot is that the shell is made completely of
cardboard. The outside is cardboard, similar to the kind you would find on a
simple box, but the inside is all machine. The robot uses an affecter arm to
draw various patterns on the sides of a mug. The robot is even smart enough to
work on mugs with a tapered or variable surface.
