Machine Beautifully Arranges Rocks by Age and Type
Robotics and automation technologies have been used to create a wide variety of complex machines, and one artist has created a machine that sorts rocks into lines and it’s pretty mesmerizing. Sorting rocks isn’t completely useless, as geologists often need to sort and classify different rock fragments into different categories. Designed by Czech artist Prokop Bartoníček and German artist Benjamin Maus, this machine uses a suction cup and a camera to identify rocks and move them into the correct category. This machine was created for display at Ex Post, an installation space in Prague. Check out the video below to see the robot in action.
