Slate published a piece about a Torah-writing robot on display at the Jewish Museum in Germany:
Created by Robotlab and adapted with the help of an Israeli graphic designer, the robot is part of the exhibit “The Creation of the World,” which focuses on the role and significance of sacred text in the Jewish tradition—Rabbi Reuven Yaacobov, a sofer, is in a nearby room writing his own scroll. What’s most interesting about the robot is the attempt to mimic the act of people like Yaacobov—instead of using any fancy digital printing, it adopts the human act of writing, right down to the quill.
