GML Recording Machine Workshop (video)


GML (Graffiti Markup Language) Recording Machine is a DIY device that is capable of capturing and writing a spray can's movement to a microSD card. With two separate strings attached to each foot of the graffiti writer -writer needs to keep his/her feet still- (also can be attached to the wall, to keep the writer's feet free), position of the spray can is tracked during the tag writing process. These string's length are measured by a simple ball mouse where these strings turns the X and Y rollers inside the mouse and the strings are retracted by two retractable tape measures. These measurements are processed by an Arduino and stored in an SD card to be converted to GML later on.
