The Rasterbator: Huge DIY Artwork

Here's a little tip for you to play with if it gets rainy in the next few weekends, and you're stuck inside.

The Rasterbator is an infamous website which allows you to blow your own picture up to 20 meters in size. The quality of the images is up to you and will depend on your paper and printer...

How does it work?

The folks there transform your pic into many, one page PDF files and send them back to you. You then print out the images and piece them together. This is how they put it:

The Rasterbator creates huge, rasterized images from any picture. Upload an image, print the resulting multi-page pdf file and assemble the pages into extremely cool looking poster up to 20 meters in size.

Simple, right? Think of all the things you could do with this. Outside of the rather limited selection of image that they have on file, think about AT'ers doing faux headboards, curtains, any type of decorative motif, like columns, or working with color to piece together a really beautiful pic of a forest scene or landscape. We'd love to host a rasterbator contest for interiors...
