Son: But Ma, I can draw my own photo!
Ma: Nope son, you attach robo arm to you.
The last drawing you did of yourself was hideous and misrepresented. Besides, the robot captures your best features dear.

Thomas Ricker states it best, it’s “a device that snaps your photo and then forces you to draw your own face by dragging your bound hands around until the portrait is complete…too lazy to make the portrait itself.”

Ok, in all seriousness though, this could actually be a good use of tech for people who enjoy drawing portraits but lack the arm control or upper body strength to put pen to paper. Thank you robot, thank you.
