Bringing Spraypainting Indoors.

Gaming consoles have come a VERY long way- from old school Segas‘ and Nintendo 64s’ to highly developed and advanced Wii consoles.
In particular, Wii has brought innovative, creative, and addictive games to homes across the nation including but surely not limited to Guitar Hero, Rock Band, Mario Kart, Wii Fit etc.
A new interactive virtual game created for the Wii system is the new Wiispray 2nd edition, which is currently still coming into finalization. The idea and modifications came into play at the Bauhaus University in Germany by students Martin Lihs and Frank Matuse in 2007 and is supported by Montana spraypaint.
For more information on this project, view the site here.

Wiispray 2nd edition features:

» Designed for regular use with the Nintendo Wii and for the
three Dimensional interaction concept of Wii Spray.

» A real add-on for the Wii, just plug the Wii Remote in the
Wii Spray Can and start!

» Buttonless design, easy use for left-and-right-handed persons.
Wii Spray uses an input interface similar to the Montana donut system.

» Pressure sensitive valve, up to 128 Values.

» Up to 128 different caps – inexpensive technology (less than 40 cent)
and build to resist!

» Interactive color display with the possibillity to show
the color level in six steps! just in case…

» USB port for charging the battery and load the latest firmware.

» the Wii Spray 2nd  edition controller is able to sense its distance to the wall you are spraying on.
