Blind Self Portrait Drawing Machine

Blind Self Portrait Drawing Machine by Matt Mets and Kyle McDonald
Blind Self Portrait is a collaboration by Matt Mets and Kyle McDonald, installed at NYC Resistor interactive show. Visitors close their eyes and the machine moves their hand to draw a self-portrait. The computer tracks the visitor’s face and generates a drawing based on it. What a fun experience it must be!

Watch a video clip of the machine in action below!

A gallery of blind self portraits here.
