Scribit
The Write&Erase Robot Empowers Human Creativity

Named by Time Magazine among the best inventions of 2019, Scribit is the intelligent ‘writing robot’ that allows you to draw images and text on any wall surface, and it’s ready to liven up the homes of its users with wall art.

Created by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor Carlo Ratti, the draw&erase robot is conceived and designed as a creativity empowering tool. It challenges the paradigm of art as a steady product and transcends the space of the gallery, bringing visual art into your home, office, etc., right on your very wall. Scribit is intended to converse with the means of the art form, provoke creative meditation and spur one’s imaginativeness and creativity.

With its in-built engines, Scribit can be installed in less than 5 minutes: all that is needed is Wi-Fi, two nails and a power plug. Furthermore, thanks to a special patented technology, Scribit can safely draw, cancel and re-draw new content an infinite number of times, allowing you to print a different image on your wall every day or even every few minutes. Scribit can travel on every kind of vertical surface, from whiteboards to glass or plaster. Thus, any vertical plane can be transformed into a screen – a wonder wall where images, messages, or feeds are projected.

Scribit is always connected to the web, allowing you to download, upload or source any content from the Internet. A restaurant can post the day’s menu on its wall, a financial firm can post stock market updates in its lobby, or someone who loves art can project a Van Gogh’s – or their own drawings – onto their bedroom wall. The interactive software of the robot provides a direct access to Scribit’s creative ecosystem. Once the user sends their digital information to the device, or selects an image from the gallery, the plotter starts reproducing it.

Scribit offers users access to a broad range of digital content structured around mini Apps. In this global marketplace – people, businesses or institutions, from artists to museums, to media organizations – can develop and upload any type of content and interact.

Scribit, which means “s/he writes” in Latin, is a result from a long line of predecessor prototypes of writing machines, developed in CRA’s practice. This includes the installation OSARCH at the 2011 Istanbul Design Biennale, the façade of the Future Food District at Milan’s World Expo 2015 (selected by Guiness World Records as the largest image ever plotted) – and, more recently, UFO-Urban Flying Opera, a project in which a fleet of painting drones are being exploited to draw a collectively-sourced image. All these projects can be seen as interpretations of the idea of “tangible bits” developed by MIT Professor Hiroshi Ishii: they bring together the best of both the digital and the physical worlds.

On July 2019 Scribit has launched Scribit Originals, a series that seeks to explore various interpretations of art and universal messages in an effort to expand people’s awareness of universal messages such as sustainability, diversity, spirituality and equality. The series has involved many public intellectuals, scientists, artists and activists in spreading their ideas through Original contents, available for all the Scribit users to be streamed on their wall via app.
