True to its underground aesthete, it took awhile for the TxtBomber to make an impact on the web.
You see, its creator Felix Vorreitor already perfected the handheld printing machine in 2005 and it only caught on with the tech press recently—like this week. Better late than never, you say?
The TxtBomber is a specialized tool for printing messages on flat surfaces when you don’t have either the skill or the time to execute colorful graffiti.
Some journalists have even dubbed it a leveler in urban art—it levels the playing field by allowing anyone to leave messages on walls and public spaces, regardless of talent. Still, the TxtBomber’s use stretches beyond illicit activities as advertisers have noted that its potential as an outdoor marketing tool has yet to be tapped.
Despite its clunky appearance, the TxtBomber is as easy to use as a paintbrush. You input the message you want printed, apply it to a surface and seven cartridges gush out the ink to complete the words. Perfect.
Whether you consider it a gadget or a plaything, the fact of the matter is TxtBomber is simply too cool to handle; as the title to this post suggests. Imagine all the stuff you can print on your house, car, yard, etc.
