Robot Arm writes copies of the Luther Bible [Pic].... How times have changed!

I picked up the following story from Boing Boing.

Here's a picture of a robotic arm doing what Monks did way back in the scholastic era - writing copies of the Bible out by hand!

My, how times have changed.... I have often thought of getting my New Testament students to write out the New Testament just to be sure that they are reading it!!!

When I candidated to become a minister we had to read the whole Bible from cover to cover. It was quite a worthwhile experience (except for Numbers...).

For more great images of this 'monkbot' at work (please check out the great font it is writing in) go to the flickr page.

  • 'twas very cool seeing this linked to from Amatomu, as I worked for Kuka a few years ago. While there a colleague brokered a deal to have Kuka robots appear in a James Bond movie, wielding lasers so as to cut Halle Berry into pieces!

  • Hi Henk,

    That is incredible!!! Wow, what an experience! I would love to be part of something with that kind of geek-cred!

    Thanks for the comment!
