Project MoNET is a web controlled robot capable of creating paintings based on crowd-sourced inputs. It will debut at Maker Faire Pittsburgh 2016.

Project MoNET is named after Claude Monet, father of French Impressionism and celebrated beard enthusiast.

how it works

The Project MoNET web application allows users (the crowd) to create color samples using the camera on their mobile device.


The Project MoNET robot will then paint those color samples to canvas.


Additionally, Project MoNET will eventually be able to create paintings based on images and various other data sources.
