The Facade Printer

Yep. It's awesome! But the fact that nowhere in their literature does it say that this thing is basically a very elegant, computer-controlled paintball gun, leads me to believe that the designers may be drinking too much of their own Kool-Aid. Neat, though. This from the site:
"'facade printer' is a software controlled inkjet printer that creates images on an architectural scale. developed by german product designers martin fussenegger, michael haas and engineer julian adenauer. the system 'prints' images by shooting individual dots from a distanced position varying
from 5 meters to 20 feet. 'facade printer' features a two axis turn table and
an air pressure printhead."
