Technology Behind Intelligent Chinese Couplets
With the sliding rail kit and Chinese brush, DOBOT Magician can write vivid Chinese Calligraphy with different styles such as official script, Cursive, and even Wang Xizhi’s handwriting. Controlled by a special APP, DOBOT Magician can imitate the same path of any calligrapher, which makes the writing process more intelligent.

1) How to Generate the Path? There are two ways to create a path for robotic writing: one is to create a vector path in PLT format, and the other is to generate the path automatically by the iPad touch pen.

2) How Does DOBOT Magician Work on the Path? The finished path by PLT text or iPad touch pen will be obtained by the algorithm and output equidistant path coordinate points. Send these points to DOBOT Magician via computer or Buletooth and it will work according to the path submitted. Then we can see DOBOT Magician is writing Chinese couplets.
