German design group Sonice Development GmbH built this large-scale printer, called the Facade Printer. It’s basically a fancy, computer-controlled paintgun. It seems they have come a long way since we first covered their project back in 2006. Anyone ever hook this up to GRL’s L.A.S.E.R. Tag? [via dudecraft]
