VR/Urban's SMSlingshot paints on walls with digital pixels

Amazing VR/Urban Project from Berlin:

The SMSlingshot is an autonom working device, equipped with an ultra-high frequency radio, hacked arduino board, laser and batteries. Text messages can be typed on a phone-sized wooden keypad which is integrated in the also wooden slingshot. After the message is finished, the user can aim on a media facade and send/shoot the message straight to the targeted point. It will then appear as a colored splash with the message written within. The text message will also be real-time twittered – just in case.

have a look at the video on the official page of the project. Very interesting use of the sling in a digital way.
