txtBomber prints messages on walls

Davide GombaJuly 29th, 2010

A very impressing project that brings out the idea (seen some time ago with Bikes against Bush, and later enpowered by the Tour the France) of triggering several motors/paintBrushes in sequence, and printing out some messages.

The project is well designed, well-referenced, and German. I’m getting used to see wonderful urban-related projects from Germany.

The txtBOMBER is a one-hand-guerillia-tool – a machine not much bigger than a pressing iron – that generates political statements on the fly and immidiately prints them on any flat surface.
If you feel you are part of our modern viewless generation, the txtBOMBER is the perfect tool for you! Just switch it on, it’s powered by a strong battery. And move it along a wall. It’s that easy to show your?its?someones? opinion of something?someone?! Hell! You should reconsider if you are keen enough to use it!
The txtBOMBER has seven build-in pens to “print” the letters and a micro-controller-brain (Arduino), no need for a computer or any other brain.
