  • An accelerometer and gyroscope are utilized to refine the accuracy of the process

SprayPrinter inventor Mihkel Joala explains that the thought was inspired by modern car engines and the Nintendo Wii console. “Engines these days use incredibly swift valves to spray fuel to combustion chamber,” says Joala. “I accomplished I can use them to shoot paint with pinpoint accuracy.”

The handheld printing device uses a swift acting electromagnetic valve that can open and close up to 200 times a 2nd. This means that it can effectively print up to 200 pixels per 2nd.

The process can use a blank wall or only of any surface as a canvas. The user selects a create via the SprayPrinter app on their smartphone, such as a photo they’ve taken or a picture they like, after that the create is loaded onto the printing device via Bluetooth and broken down into pixels.

In order to turn it into the artwork, the user must set up their smartphone on a platform or tripod with the camera facing the wall or surface onto that they can paint. The dimensions and position of the eventual create can be adonlyed by moving the phone nearer to or additional away of the wall and of side to side.

The SprayPrinter app and so tracks the movement of the printing device by way of an LED light on the device, telling it when to spray and when to stop. An accelerometer and gyroscope are utilized to refine the accuracy of the process. Only one can of spray paint can be slotted into the printing device at any one time, but the cans can be changed so that various colors can be layered upon the create.

In addition to being utilized to turn it into artworks, the mobile app in addition provides access to an online community where it is possible for users to view and share creates. It’s in addition possible for artists to sell their creates through the community.

An Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for the SprayPrinter is ongoing. At the time of writing, pledges start at US$149. Assuming all goes to plan with the campaign and roll-out. the devices are expected to start shipping in July.

SprayPrinter can be featured tonight on Discovery Canada’s Daily Planet.
