Previous NPE shows have featured robots playing basketball and miniature golf. An imaginative display this year at NPE2018 was a robot from Star Automation, Menomonee, Wis., using a new three-axis servo head to do Japanese calligraphy. The robot carefully loaded the brush with ink, painted the figure, and then rinsed the brush. It was all done with programming; no vision cameras necessary.
