    Renoir is a low-tech haptic robot that paints abstract art by teaming with his users. You can see there are provisions for mounting different drawing materials like sketch pens, pencils, paintbrushes etc. There is a haptic glove that the user needs to wear in order to control the speed at which the robot moves. And the movement is designed to be irregular and unpredictable so that the art forms that are created are not constant and varies according to how the robot is controlled. Currently Renoir is in the version 2.0 stage where only the speed of the art patterns formed can be controlled. However, version 3.0 is looking to be even promising where the movements and direction of the robot will be controlled using gestures by the one wearing a wireless haptic glove. You'll need to wait to check that out. Read Less
