Facadeprinter: For When You Can’t Be Bothered To Paint It Yourself

Let me axe you a question: do you like rad things? In the possible event that you do, I invite you to keep reading. If you answered no, keep reading anyway, you insufferable crank, and let’s turn that frown upside-down, yeah?

Utilizing a steady supply of paintballs and compressed air, the Facadeprinter is an art project by three German industrial designers with a serious need to leave their mark. An infrared sensor measures the distance to the wall, a USB key supplies the image to be fired, the software compensates for driving power and ‘ballistic distortion’, and the gun does the rest. I don’t know about you, but I’d say this qualifies as rad. For sure.

To be honest, there isn’t much more I can say that a video can’t. So how about I just poke your goddamn eyes out with one. How about two?

Ty is an illustrator who stays up too late, and has to wear glasses. You can follow him on Twitter if you want to (@glitchritual), but he's just gonna throw your stupid PR crap in the garbage, so don't email him.
