Sensory Device for Virtual Graffiti Creation


Article Preview

The paper presents the synergic application of inertial, force, image and distance sensors for graffiti creation. The complete painting head and software generating picture were designed and realized. Painting head receives impulses and converts them into electric signal transmitted to the computer. Sensors deliver data information about distance, angles and a force applied on the tip of painting head and special algorithm converts this information into created blur shape. The information about angles distorts created blur and information about force increase-decrease, rarefy and thicken the graffiti blur. Painting head resembles spray can.
