A Time Print Machine

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

When designer Paul Ferragut rigged standard felt-tip pens to a custom machine and created an interpretive program using openFrameworks, the result was colorful. 

The pens move along a printer-like, mechanical slide and create different sized dots, or pixels depending on how long the pen is in contact with the paper. When layered and combined, Ferragut writes, these dots create a new take on the old artistic technique of pointillism.
