Scribit was unveiled in Milan, Italy on 16 April 2018, during Salone del Mobile – the world’s leading design event. A subsequent crowdfunding campaign was started on 5 June 2018. The intelligent writing robot that ushers in a new way of presenting digital content, makes it possible that you instantly reconfigure and personalize a wall – whether it’s a storefront, an office lobby or your living room.
With its in-built engines, Scribit can be installed in less than 5 minutes: all that is needed are 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 surface can be transformed into a screen - a wonderwall 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. Scribit’s interactive software allows the real-time reproduction of any kind of data, including notes, messages, pictures and graphics. Once the user sends their digital information to the device, the plotter starts reproducing it.
The robot works on a two-axis plane, moving up and down two very discrete cables hanging off a vertical wall. It can place itself at any point with great precision and uses markers to reproduce any type of content. Circular in shape, Scribit is 20cm x 8cm in dimension and covered in aluminum, with four markers of different colors at its very center.
The vertical plotter will offer 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.
