industrial light painting

Functionally useless, but a beautiful art form nonetheless…sort of like a Rube Goldberg machine for light paintings: Students at Carnegie Mellon University are using to create industrial light portraits: a massive robot, typically used for heavy-duty manufacturing, that paints with
