cloudpainter Hardware Complete - 2 Robotic Arms and 5 Airbrushes
cloudpainter, as we currently imagine it, will have two 7bot robotic arms and five airbrushes on our Neural Jet painthead. The canvas will be on a track and move up and down between the painting tools.
We are thinking that when a painting begins, the Neural Jet will use its airbrushes to paint a quick background.
Then the canvas will be moved up to an area where the robotic arms can use artist brushes to touch up the painting. If it needs more airbrushing, it will move back to that area, back and forth as needed.
There is still a lot of fine tuning we need to make to the hardware to make all of this possible. But at least we now know the direction we are heading in and we can begin to write the software.
