SprayPrinter was invented by Mihkel Joala. Well, actually, he was forced to come up with a creative solution that would draw for him when his daughter asked for a painting of a unicorn on her wall. Mihkel is a talented guy, but one thing he really can’t do is draw. Despite this, he wanted to keep the apple of his eye happy, so he started thinking of an alternative solution that would get the image on the wall without him drawing it. He ended up with a creative solution by combining a Wii controller with a car engine valve. “Engines nowadays use extremely fast valves to spray fuel to combustion chamber, I realized I can use them to shoot paint with pinpoint accuracy,” Mihkel explains. From there smart spray paint technology was born. SprayPrinter enables you to print pictures from smartphones to any surface using spray paint. Mihkel came up with this genius idea, but the idea alone was not enough. He needed a team.
