Protopiper: Physically Sketching Room-Sized Objects at Actual Scale

Tested.com highlighted an awesome project from students at the Hasso Plattner Institute to prototype physical objects using tubes of tape.  They built an ingenious ‘gun’ that spits out precisely measured tubes of tape that can be connected and constructed into large structures.  This allows very rapid prototyping of objects like furniture as they show in the video.

Check out the project page and watch the video for more details.  You might even notice an Adafruit part or two on the protopiper, like a quad alpha-numeric LED backpack–cool!
