We've seen robots built to play music, but are they able to tackle other arts? Pose that question to Robert Howsare, a printmaking MFA student at Ohio University, and he'll probably give you an emphatic, Yes. 

Howsare is the man behind the "Drawing Apparatus" project that you see above. Taking two turntables laying around his crib, Howsare outfitted them with slats of wood and a some Sharpie markers and let them loose on some blank pieces of paper. 

The results are pretty outstanding. To learn more about how Howsare made this happen and to see the art, head over to Wired.com
