I love the juxtaposition of high tech and low tech.
Over at Roland Piquepaille’s blog on ZDnet, there’s a fairly long post about an art project in Germany that has taken a robotic arm and repurposed it to copy the complete Bible as translated by Martin Luther. They even programmed it to do everything in a caligraphic style with fancy, illuminated capital letters starting the paragraphs, just like the monks in the scriptorums used to do. By the time you’re reading this, the art exhibit this is a part of will have closed, but the webpages live on.
So, anyway, it’s cool and you should go read about “a very religious robot“.
