Robotic Monk

I saw this article and photo on BotJunkie last night. Here's what it says, "This industrial robot, called Kuka, is busily writing out the full version of the Martin Luther Bible by hand. Or I guess you’d say by robot arm, but it’s actually doing very precise calligraphy with a pen... I think it’s pretty cool to see an industrial robot doing something so delicate and (okay, okay) beautiful. There are a few more photos available on here on flikr."

The company that makes Kuka has a nice website and it is linked here. Nice calligraphy, but can it chant? Or is it a beautiful as the St. John's Bible?
