    seen it. guy is smoking crack if he thinks shops will pay that price though. by the time you set that thing up, get the print on it, get it aligned, we would have already had it on the vehicle.

    i call it one of the great bad inventions. it is neato mosquito, but just dont see the real practical application value in it.

    $5K-$8K

    i'm sure there are suckers out there, but i would have a hard time believing anyone would pay that much for it....

    it's a glorified drywall hanger....

    I can see where this would be great for 1 or two man shops (like ours). That being said, while I rarely if ever agree with Mosh, I think i could fabricate one of these on my own for a whole lot less than $5k.

    saw it in use at SEMA, what a freakin' joke!
    just like pro wraps said, we'd have started stickin vinyl way before the guy got that contraption set up!
    if one man can't wrap a rig by himself without the "craptor", then he should be in a different line of work.

    Unless the hidden use is for windsurfing.

    I agree with others. By the time you got the thing out and set up an experienced installer would be finished with the job.

    That is similar looking to an idea I had ...only thing is...it's missing the memory foam material that pushes the vinyl onto the vehicle for you. Or something like that. I've daydreamed about stuff like that...how can we make a cookie cutter process for wrapping a vehicle. Problem is...every vehicle is shaped different...every year.

    wrap the vehicle with white

    get your trusty laser altitude guided printer right up next to it.. and skip one whole step.

    Heck, start with a white vehicle and you don't even need any vinyl! This is crazy!

    thats intense!

    Please consider the cost of printing on bus body by previous method(sticking film),the film cost,workman's charge for sticking film and the time for sticking. As you understand,the previous method by sticking film is very expensive compared to our method.

    In the US even! http://www.robopaintermaryland.com/
