Legonardo is a portrayer robot built using Lego and connecting some Lego Mindstorms NXT v2.0.

“Ladies and gentlemen, here is Legonardo, a portrayer robot. It is my fourth generation drawing machine. It is inspired by the work of 18th Century Swiss watch and automata makers Pierre Jacquet-Droz and Henri Maillardet. After reading The Invention of Hugo Cabret, I completely redesigned my portrayer into this shape.The name is a tribute to Leonardo Da Vinci, Italian artist and inventor. The drawings are generated by a custom software I wrote, similar to the one used for my first portrayer robot.” (Daniele Benedettelli)
