Belgium-based design firm Unfold has started work on a 3D printer that would enable artists to create artworks in ceramics without needing to get their hands dirty.

WiiSpray - http://www.wiispray.com/
WiiSpray (to be renamed WeSpray) is a prototype game that involves life-like use of a spray can to graffiti a digital canvas. The WiiSpray can works in exactly the same manner as the real thing. There are options to interchange the nozzles, color and 'canvas' backgrounds and people can even create artwork using one of the digital stencils. The result is an almost perfect replication of the spray patterns in a digital format.
