A research group at Keio University in Japan has developed a Motion Copy System which is then used in the Calligraphy robot to reproduce the detailed brush strokes and movements. The research group, led by Seiichiro Katsura, has achieved the feature that can record and reproduce not just the movement and strokes of the brush but the force applied to the brush as well as the sensation when you touch something.
“We’ve succeeded in using the motor to record the movements of a veteran calligrapher, and to actually reproduce them. So, I think we’ve demonstrated that, to record and reproduce human skills, it’s necessary to record not just motions, but also how strongly those motions are made.”
