It’s not very often that I feel moved to get my creative groove on, so when I stumbled across this new BMW Z4 ad online that promised to let me paint my own pretty pictures by driving the new model Z4 around my screen like a madman, I felt compelled to find out more.
In the ad artist Robin Rhodes uses the new-model BMW Z4 as a 306 horsepower paint brush to create an awesome-looking colourful design on both the canvas and the car! Now that’s all well and good but it’s no fun if you don’t get to have a go for yourself, and thankfully you do, well kind of.
Unfortunately BMW aren’t dishing out spanking new Z4s and aircraft hangar-sized spaces with which to thrash around its newest creation in a puddle of paint, but if you’ve got a Windows (XP or Vista) PC, a printer, a webcam, a decent graphics card and at least 2GB of RAM then you recreate the experience using 3D state of the art technology from the comfort of your own home, or office – if you’re really trying to avoid work.
It only takes a couple of minutes to do is print out the special 3D Z4 symbol and install the Z4 3D Paintbrush software et voilà, you’re ready to start carving up your virtual canvas with your paint strewn tyres. Once you’re happy with your creation you can share it straight away courtesy of Facebook or Youtube.
Check out the video below, or speed straight on over to the BMW Z4 3D Paintbrush site to download the software and have a go for yourself.
