Can a do-it-yourself and lowcost robot draw lines like a human? A soundreactive software recognizes the volume of the surrounding space and translates the value in form of a line. The robot draws the generated graphic on paper. Already after a few lines you can see a difference to the human drawing (without ruler). Due to some technical limitations, the printer has its own and unique drawing style.
