Willow Garage’s beer serving PR2 Robot’s illustrative debut

Well this is one way to avoid the Uncanny Valley. Willow Garage hired artist Josh Ellingson to illustrate their new PR2 Robot, whose beer-serving, pool-playing skills have been sweeping across the Internet.

From Willow Garage:

One of the problems we have when creating presentations or other materials for robotics is the availability of artwork to illustrate the topics we’re discussing. That’s why we’re making available all of the great artwork that Josh Ellingson did for us in our “PR2 Beta Sites Spotlight” series available with a Creative Commons (NC, BA) license.
