The Rasterbator

The Rasterbator is a web service which creates huge, rasterized images from any picture. The rasterized images can be printed and assembled into extremely cool looking posters up to 20 meters in size.

Years and years ago there was an app that would do this on the Mac (probably back in the IIfx days). Anyway this is a way cool web service (or free app). The Rasterbator (that name is going to cause them some problems) takes any raster image, and blows it up to a poster of any size up to 20 meters, or about 60 feet. What’s really cool though is that the app will carve it into prinatble chunks, so you can assemble them however you like.

Create a huge mosaic or carefully fill the whole wall . Either way it’s a great way to empty those inkjet cartridges. Oh, and it is both a web app and a download, as you can do either. The standalone app requires .NET ( all 20 something Meg of it), and the authors think it might work using Mono on the Mac and Linux.

Time to by shares in an ink company I think?
