Digital tape-drawing system

An old project but still relevant: Digital Tape Drawing (.pdf) by Ravin Balakrishnan, George Fitzmaurice, Gordon Kurtenbach and William Buxton.

Tape drawing is the art of creating sketches on large scale upright surfaces using black photographic tape.

We analyze and describe the unique aspects of tape drawing, and use this knowledge to design and implement a digital tape drawing system.
