Berlin-based creative studio Sonice Development have been climbing a lot of walls lately – first with their painting robot, and now to plaster giant images of the Converse Chuck Taylor across three cities in Germany.

The signature shoe is being applied to walls in Berlin, Hamburg, and Germany using the company’s “Facadeprinter” – a device that uses paintballs to create images one ball at a time.

Capable of creating large-scale murals in any dimension. an integrated computer within the easily transportable machine reads graphics from USB drives and can correct perspective and ballistic distortion when supplied with compressed air.

A touchpad interface makes it easy for designers to adapt to any architectural context, size, position and dot-density.

See what the device can do for yourself in the following video:
