IF YOU'VE got kids, you probably have some of their artwork attached to your fridge.
But what about your car? Not stuck on, but actually painted – by the most advanced robots of their kind on the planet.
That's what is set to be offered by a company called ABB, which has developed a robot with 1000 nozzles that can replicate the most complex artworks around.
Its robots already paint cars in factories the world over, but its latest one has been tested in a secret facility up until now and will begin painting customer cars in the next couple of years.
Car personalisation is big business, with some Rolls-Royce customers spending hundreds of thousands of pounds having their cars exactly as they want them.
Paint is part of that, but up until now replicating very complex artworks has been difficult to achieve.

But the thinking is that you won't need to be a Rolls-Royce buyer to afford this new service. It'll be available for mainstream cars too.
Former Jaguar and Aston Martin designer Ian Callum, said: "There are so many cars on the road, and you know, they’re all looking very similar.
"People want personalisation. The offer in this paint is absolutely
incredible because it does offer a very individual look for any car, and a very personal look as well.
Before it’d be complicated process of perhaps putting a wrap on it, which I always feel uncomfortable with.
"I think that real paint on a car is the way to go. So, this is offering all
sorts of new levels of individual design for a motor car. In fact, it’s incredible.”
“I can see this being applied to cars that you and I could buy. I think it’s extremely exciting.”

To promote the new robot, ABB commissioned eight-year-old child artist Advait Kolarkar, whose abstract works have sold
for over £100,000.
Advait, who has been named one of the world’s top 100 child prodigies, painted his commission ‘Zebra Utopia’ onto a canvas on the floor of his studio at home in India.
It was then scanned for the robot to paint it onto the car.
Advait said: “I could not believe a robot was painting an artwork for the first time ever.
“And it wasn’t just any artwork. It was my artwork."
