The often maligned graffiti artist now has a new and pollution free way (ignoring the energy used by the smartphone) to tag the world. The Andoidpit app developers have created an augmented reality graffiti Airpainter. The app allows you to create airpaintings which are limited in creativity by the nimbleness of your touch-pad finger. It also allows the user to view any nearby airpaintings.
The video is in German but since they’re showing close-ups of the app, its easy to figure it out what’s going on.
The app looks like an interesting way to experience augmented reality on the Android, but it probably isn’t that much fun unless a critical mass of people in an area are using it. On the other hand, diabolical artists could certainly spice up the bathroom wall and I’m positive some of the earliest drawings will be overlarge genitalia floating into a doorways.

Yay! I can tag again! 🙂 Brilliant app, thanks!!
after a bit of digging around, I think it’s Japanese, and this is the actual homepage:
Unbelievable, AR has no limit!! On the top of that our house’s walls would be safe in a near future 😉
Rouli, FYI, it’s a Taiwanese not Japanese homepage.
