The kid in us loves writing chalk messages on the driveway. [As we grow up, some of us move on to walls.] But, what if you could use the road as your canvas? A new device developed in partnership with DeepLocal and StandardRobot effectively allows you to “write” on roads on a large scale, much larger scale! Presenting the Chalkbot, something akin to a giant ink jet printer on wheel, that pneumatically sprays out either messages or graphics.
The Chalkbot debuted at the 2nd Stage of 2009 Tour de France on July 5th with more than 100,000 messages of hope, courage and action about cancer survival.
