One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action, and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

SENSELESS DRAWING BOT from yang02 on Vimeo.

So Kanno and Takahiro Yamaguchi's Senseless Drawing Bot may provide another angle of world domination for the robot conspiracy theorists, but in a short, one-minute video, the two Japanese innovators prove their bot is only a threat in the art world. 

The robot has an artistic form and inexplicable organic style that the creative duo was able to achieve through a series of swivels on the machine capable of shaking a can of spraypaint and pulling the trigger with the flick of its "wrist."

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
