Richard and Mihkel meet. Yin & Yang
Taking part of the Hardware accelerator Build It
Third time, Mihkel and Richard were told that, okay, they can take part of the programme but BuildIt will not invest in the company. Well, later on, they did.

There were many early versions of how SprayPrinter will look and function one day, this is one of them.

First artistic collaboration with a street artist Edward von Lõngus
“When the SprayPrinter team offered me to try out their latest invention, I chose the self portrait of Vincent van Gogh as a tribute to the old masters. Impressionism was the first step towards unlocking the secrets of pixel imaging, the key element in modern visual communication,” Edward von Lõngus told about his interpretation.
You can read more about SprayPrinter’s possible impact on street art from here.
Since the very beginning, we have emphasized that SprayPrinter itself does not make anyone an artist. It works like a brush or a colouring book. Or something in between. Or both. But the willingness to try out different techniques and tricks is what makes it possible for an artist to benefit from it. And we are always very eager to see how artists interpret the tool. Especially because we understand that people might be sceptical towards new technology. More than once have we met a position that this device is too “tech”, therefore the result is too mechanical, too easy. We were delighted whenEdward von Lõngus interpreted the tool in his own manner and surprised us with what SprayPrinter is capable of.

The funny thing is, we decided not to use words like “innovation” or “revolution” in our press texts because they are rather overused and do not mean anything anymore. But sometimes it is not up to us

On the right you can see Mr Vonnegut by Ilmar Kruusamäe. Mr Smith on the left was made with SprayPrinter during the festival and passersby could take part of it. The author of this design – Edward von Lõngus – instructed that the hand movement should be straight down. His aim was to emphasize the Matrix code effect. Turned out pretty ok 🙂
Cooperation with the best spray paint manufacturer MTN
Shipping to the first customers
It took us longer than we expected. Well, actually, a factory we ordered some parts from, moved and we weren’t informed in time so we couldn’t find any other manufacturer quickly enough. Once we did receive the parts, it turned out the Android app was not in the condition to be given out to our customers. But now, we are in the process of shipping sprayprinters and it feels good.
Portuguese soccer legend Luis Figo signed his sprayprinted portrait at Web Summit in Lisbon
SprayPrinter has a passion for invention and innovation, so we paid tribute to one of the greatest innovators of all time Albert Einstein with the world’s largest sprayprinted mural. This time, we attached a regular SprayPrinter on a wall-climbing robot. It took 5 hours and only 3 cans of spray paint. Watch the process and see how amazing it turned out.
Our second crowdfunding campaign for an improved product was a success, reaching 160% funding. We raised $83,288 from 366 backers! SprayPrinter 2-s will be shipped by June 2017
