Have you ever walked past some cool graffiti, and wished you could create some large scale artwork for your own home? That dream is now a reality thanks to SprayPrintera spray paint device that reproduces images from your smartphone onto any wall.

The SprayPrinter works similar to a dot matrix printer, except it is made up of two key components: a clip-on unit that controls the spray paint nozzle, and an accompanying smartphone app that converts and sends images to the SprayPrinter over Bluetooth. Together, the app maps the image to the wall, while the phone’s camera tracks the position of the spray paint can so it knows exactly when to tell it to release the paint layer by layer, pixel by pixel.

You can be making art like Banksy in three easy steps. First, you choose from the app what design you want printed on the wall. Then, set up your phone a stable platform or a tripod facing the camera toward the wall you want to decorate. From there, attach the first spray can to the SprayPrinter, put it against the wall, and start moving the gadget.

How awesome is that? Check out the SprayPrinter on Kickstarter!
