This robot charts the sun’s path on your wall with the help of Olafur Eliasson


Scribit has collaborated with the artist and intriguer’s Little Sun project in an attempt to create the “world’s largest mosaic”.

Scribit, the “white b derogate and erase” robot, sketches in-put designs onto vertical paves, from living room walls to canvases. According to the company, it “ushers in a new way of introducing digital content”.

The robot, designed by Italy-based studio Carlo Ratti Associati, can then blot the “personal home graffiti” so that users are able to “instantly reconfigure” a new idol.

It climbs surfaces with two wheels and uses erasable marker jot downs.

Now the robot, which is in mass production and has already been shipped to commencing project backers, has teamed up with Little Sun, the solar project from artist and output designer Olafur Eliasson.

After users input a specific pass, hour and location into an app connected to the robot, Scribit then pulls a “custom sun path chart” on vertical surfaces.

The generated design is “a together representation of the position of the sun in the sky at their chosen time and place.”

According to the train, “each sun path chart is part of something bigger – a visual, collective assertion for climate action that reunites and connects people under the having said that sun.”

Users are able to “redefine the meaning and appearance time after on occasion” and the company estimates it can reach thousands of people’s homes simultaneously.

Scribit desires that the “ever-changing” designs could become the “world’s largest mosaic”.

It is the initially part of a series, called Scribit Originals, which aims to advance drawings by artists, poets and designers into people’s homes.

The collaboration’s social focus aligns with Eliasson’s initiatives for Little Sun.

The project was launched in 2012 at Tate Modern with the design of bringing “affordable energy to the 1.1. billion people worldwide continuing without electricity”.

Eliasson says that Little Sun is a “response to our backsheesh situation”.

“Energy shortage and unequal energy distribution demand that we reconsider how our life-sustaining processes function,” he says.

Little Sun looks to “open up this urgent examination from the perspective of art and to raise awareness about energy access and its unequal issuance”.

830,000 Little Sun lamps have since been distributed worldwide and two diverse models have been added to the series.

In 2017, Eliasson — whose fair, In Real Life, is currently on at Tate Modern — launched the Little Sun Basis as an extension to the initial project.

The non-profit aims to “bring light to the sundry vulnerable communities” especially “school children, refugees and people influenced by natural disaster.”

The Scribit app can be tried out here, where users inclination be directed to a donation page for Little Sun.
