taggin.jpgI know all you engineers out there are hardcore graffiti artist, but feel conflicted over vandalizing your place of employment. That’s why you need to see this.

Graffiti artist DAIM is part of the “Tagged in Motion” project to create virtual free-floating 3D graffiti. That’s right kiddo’s, railroad cars and abandoned buildings are no longer needed.

In a large hall, three cameras using Motion Capturing record DAIM’s position and the movements he executes with a virtual spray can. The assimilated data is shown to him in real time in a pair of video glasses.

Personally, I opt for the real thing, but still, imagine the assimilated data being translated to a modeler with additional real-time manipulation. A bit artsy in the application, but still I keep thinking, why does being an engineer or designer mean we have to sit at a desk all day?
