I can appreciate the skill involved in making art with spray cans. I’ve watched videos on YouTube before of people seemingly spraying random colors of paint onto a surface and ending up with something awesome. If you are like me and lack the skills needed to do anything artistic, check out the SprayPrinter.
It’s an attachment that you put onto a can of spray paint that activates the valve, spraying little dots of color onto the surface you are painting. Your smartphone sends the image data you want to create to the SprayPainter and tells the can when to spray to create the image.
The camera on the smartphone keeps track of where the can is. All the “artist” has to do is move the can back and forth and watch the dot-matrix style art take shape. Neat, huh?
The people behind SprayPainter hope to kick off an Indiegogo funding campaign next month. In the mean time, you can check out a video of the SprayPrinter in action over at designboom.
