Artaic Wins CID Award for Iowa State Mural: Learning to Fly

The 2013 Coverings Installation and Design (CID) Awards† is a competition for architects, designers, contractors, installers, and manufactures to demonstrate creativity and outstanding technical know-how in the use of tile and stone in commercial and residential projects.

Artaic Wins 2013 R+D Award from ARCHITECT Magazine

Artaic Wins 2013 R+D Award from ARCHITECT Magazine

Mosaic techniques are thought to be as old as the ancient ziggurats of Mesopotamia—and equally as labor intensive. “In the early history of mosaic production, artists would design and slaves would implement,” says Paul Reiss, co-founder of Boston-based mosaic fabricator Artaic.

Mosaics By Robot, Everyone

Mosaics By Robot, Everyone

Yesterday’s Wired profile tells the futuristic story of Artaic, a company hoping for “world mosaic domination,” by way of a robot that builds cheaper, faster mosaics than even factories in China and India. For anyone following the creep of robots into the so-called creative industries -- music, architecture and now, apparently, mosaic work -- the obvious question to follow is what a world cloaked in robot murals will look like. Puzzlingly, the story doesn’t go there.

World’s Most Wired Mosaic Maker

World’s Most Wired Mosaic Maker

The first thing you hear is the robot. The rhythmic beat of whirrs punctuated by brief silences reaches down the unmarked concrete halls of the Boston Design Center, letting you know you’re headed in the right direction. As you approach the entrance to Artaic’s offices, you pass by an open side door and the robot is right there — an industrial arm suspended off a steel frame, its tip zipping back and forth between a gridded sheet and rows of colored tiles.

Man and the Machine

Man and the Machine

New England Home Magazine spotlights Artaic's mosaic making robot "Arty" - "Nimble as Fred Astaire, Arty is the size of a catering truck, a half-ton of metal and cutting-edge science; a robot that never gets tired, never makes mistakes and works ten times faster than the fastest human."

Home Is Where You Hang Out With Your Robot

Home Is Where You Hang Out With Your Robot

A recurring theme here in TWiB is the idea that robots will soon help you do much more in your home than vacuum your floors or perhaps mop your kitchen. There are perhaps some good reasons for this--starting with the old notion that housework is a chore, and the newer one showing that consumers are now used to spending more money on items like Dyson equipment. Home-assistance robots may seem a long way off, but that doesn't mean progress toward more robot involvement in your home is a dream.

Interior-Decorating Androids, Coming to a Living Room Near You

Interior-Decorating Androids, Coming to a Living Room Near You

Science fiction robots tend to come from one of two production lines: helpful protocol droids like C-3PO or cyborg Terminators hell-bent on destroying humanity. Few sci-fi storytellers imagined a future where robots would be programmed to master the art of interior decorating. Fortunately for the design-challenged, present-day roboticists have.

Ancient Art Form Meets Modern Technology

Ancient Art Form Meets Modern Technology

What sparks a genius idea? In the case of the Boston-based company Artaic, it was the founder and CEO’s trip to Europe. Enamored by the ancient mosaic work he saw at several sites there, Ted Acworth was inspired to develop a method of robotic fabrication that would allow these artistic creations, which previously took a lot of time and money, to be manufactured both more quickly and affordably.
