Spraycan - a post digital experiment

Just imagine! You are able to spray graffiti on nearly every wall in the world, completely legaly!? Spraycan is a collaborative project of Christian Bromann and Marius Foerster which can make this happen!

The idea: take a walk in Googles StreetView mode to find a nice spot for tagging. A special prepared spraycan with an bulb on the top sends light signals to a camera. The webapp finds the lightspot and draws something on a canvas. After finishing your masterpiece you can press a red button to publish the image. An Arduino microcontroller in the spraycan controls all user actions and sends events via Bluetooth and serial connection to a nodeJS server. Watch the video to get a better comprehension for that.
