SCRIBIT

Your space to your liking

A couple of years ago, the architecture and design studio Carlo Ratti Associati (CRA) has introduced a system in which a paint spray robot was used to draw images on flat surfaces, including walls.

Very clever, yes, but perhaps it may not be something that easily becomes a commercial product, although the focus of use of the product meets the specific demand of this type of customization, mainly in the homes of today.

As the previous smaller version, also with use directed to interiors – a vertical 'plotter' – also produced by the company and released in 2015, the Scribit moves directionally on two vertical and horizontal axes, on surfaces such as walls, windows or frames, producing images or text. The circular aluminum device is suspended by two diagonal cables, light weight and can be assembled in just five minutes, requiring nothing more than two anchorages and power supply.

The Scribit comes equipped with four markers, with erasable ink, of different colors, along with a rubber, thus offering the possibility to erase your old drawings, as well as create new jobs in the same area. Its operation functions through an 'app' to do the upload of images or texts for the robot connected to the internet and to inform it of the dimensions of the space in which will be drawn the selected content.

This innovative product of Carlo Ratti is not far from a small printer, but with big "ambitions", giving the opportunity and ability to take the largest possible surfaces.

In an age where we have seen increasing demand for customizations at home, or even in other spaces, this robot allows users the freedom to design and customize walls, white boards, shards of glass and other surfaces with millimetric precision through scheduled coordinates, thus allowing to create works of art, making use of CMYK markers.

"We're totally invaded by the information we receive and we spend too much of our time in front of one or other form of digital content whether it is a TV, a PC, a tablet or a smartphone. I wonder if we really want to add more digital screens to our lives?" asks Ratti, founding partner of CRA and director of the 'Senseable City Lab' in the 'Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)'. "The Scribit offers an alternative to the people, given the high costs charged by companies with a robotic system that draws in any vertical surface type, following a primordial act practiced by mankind over millions of years, from the earliest drawings in caves".

CRA unveiled the Scribit officially in April 2016, at an international design salon and is currently on a 'crowdfunding' campaign in progress since the beginning of June, with the units being marked in the minimum €199.00 amount of investment, through Kickstarter platform.
