When Madrid’s Reina Sofía Museum wanted to look deep inside its iconic but extremely delicate Pablo Picasso 'Guernica' painting, Telefonica built the tool: a 1.5 ton robot known as “Pablito” that could gently photograph every nook and cranny of the artwork. Telefonica say it created the large-scale Cartesian robot with a sophisticated photographic system to be used for digitizing images of a work of art. The idea is to let restorers peer deep inside a painting to see any deterioration and act more quickly to preserve a work of art. Here we take a look at Pabilto’s ongoing work on Picasso’s 'Guernica.'
