Google Chromelabs: Watch a Robot Draw Your Portrait

This is pretty cool. Upload a photo of yourself in this Web Lab¬†experiment¬†called Sketchbot and through the use of HTML 5 Canvas, your photo will be converted into a line drawing and a series of instructions will be sent to a robot to draw your photo in the sand. Your photo won’t be sketched for a while, but including your youtube account it will auto upload it to your playlist for you to watch later. I forgot I did this a couple months back and watched it for the first time today. Creepy!

Check out my sketchbot below:
