MIT develops way of perfectly replicating fine art paintings

Move over, Monet. [Read More]

Summary… * Machine-Made


Even specialized art inkjet printers, which introduce additional inks, can’t approach the vibrancy of colors found in an oil painting by Monet or Velázquez.
But at MIT, scientists Changil Kim and Mike Foshey have developed a way around this, using a method called RePaint.
Using 3D printing, 10 different inks, and artificial intelligence, their technique points to a world of inexpensive, super-accurate cloned paintings.
Traditionally, halftone printing uses CYMK dots of different sizes to create images that appear to have millions of colors.
The system also can’t reproduce some very special, ultra-saturated colors like cobalt blue, because the current 3D printing ink catalog is too limited.
