Hi Ann,

Now the elephant that paints pictures with a brush in it's trunk is going to go hungry.
Even elephants are not immune to being replaced by technology. I could make the argument that the elephant is painting what I'm thinking and I defy anyone to prove me wrong.

Gee thanks, rob, now I feel bad :) I don't think anyone could win that argument about what the elephant is really painting.

Keep this out of the honeymoon suite

I keep thinking "happy little tree"

Robot turns "dreams" into ART ??

It seems that some forlks with access to a lot of resources and a lot of time on their hands, got creative. Of course, as in many projects, the creativity is in the algorithm. Unfortunately there is not much clue about the relationship between input and output, and no method of interpretation is offered. 

Of course if the initial directive was to find a new way to turn a profit then it is quite reasonable. After all, how in the world could any potential customer claim the translation is incorrect? So it is quite an accomplishment from a business point of view.

I like the questions about bad vs good dreams and whether resulting paintings would they'd look very different from each other. I had similar questions. I think GTOlover is right, generally speaking: sleepers tend to get more active during bad dreams, so the painting might have a lot more going on in it than one produced by peaceful sleep.

Pair this with Aloft's recent acquisition of a robot butler (known as Botlr) and you could have the ultimate 'dream' getaway.
