Raster pen

Instant talent!
  [vote for,

This requires a pen like the 'flytop', but modified to add a camera, and also have the computer control the release of ink.

First, select a picture to be drawn is by pointing the camera lens at a suitable photo.

Next, scribble with the pen to draw lots of diagonal lines over the paper...

The pen controls when to release the ink in order to create a sketch type drawing, similar to the processing done to a photograph by the Photoshop sketch filter.

       Sort of a ultra-portable printer. If a black ink cartridge was used, with built in nozzles (like on an Epson inkjet), and some kind of position measurement, it could work like those hand-held scanners but in reverse.

       [ling] That link's brilliant! - I want one.

       shown in the movie "I, Robot", so this may be a "WIBNITTISIAMWR" or whatever.

       In the film "I robot" it was the robot doing the work rather than the pen.

       Don't worry. He got my bun too.
