Finally, it's what I've always been waiting for! A 9.3 MPH robotic grafitti robot! GraffitiWriter can be controlled remotely and programmed to 'write text' (which is code for spray paint your propaganda everywhere). In other words, you can replace your old remote control car (the one with the spray paint can duct taped to the back), because GraffitiWriter is already set up to accomodate your vandalism needs.

GraffitiWriter is a tele-operated field programable robot which employs a custom built array of spray cans to write linear text messages on the ground at a rate of 15 kilometers per hour. The printing process is similar to that of a dot matrix printer. GraffitiWriter can be deployed in any highly controlled space or public event from a remote location. - GraffitiWriter Website
