Last week, F.A.T. introduced the Graffiti Markup Language (GML), a new XML file type specifically designed for archiving graffiti tags. Of course it doesn’t make sense to only archive those tags, you should also be able to reproduce them. And that’s exactly what Golan Levin and Jeremy Ficca did. They wrote a small tool to translate the .GML files from 000000book.com into instructions for their industrial ABB IRB-4400 robot arm. If they now could place his robot on a truck like Evan Roth suggested …
Here you can find some more details about the Robotagger.
DustTag is an iPhone application designed for graffiti writers that visualizes the motion involved in the creation of a tag. It is basically the iPhone version of Evan Roth his Graffiti Analysis tool, just with a little less bells and whistles but some typical iPhone features. You can write tags on the iPhone and upload them as .gml files (Graffiti Markup Language) to the 000000book.com website. Evan designed this app together with Chris Sugrue. Support them and buy this app for just $1.99!
This is how my tag looks like when the .gml file was loaded into the Graffiti Analysis tool. Thanks Evan.
Graffiti Markup Language is the latest F.A.T. project. You probably know their graffiti-related software projects: Graffiti Analysis, Laser Tag and EyeWriter. These use now the Graffiti Markup Language, a new XML file type specifically designed for archiving graffiti tags. The .gml text files can be uploaded and downloaded on 000000book.com. The week F.A.T. will publish new GML related projects each day!
