For someone who just spent an entire weekend painting with brushes and rollers, the concept of Cold Spray coating technology sounded lovely. Granted, I was using a soft shade of blue paint with an eggshell finish instead of metal particles…and a roller instead of a high pressured robotic spray. But as I was icing my elbow after hours of painting, I was giving thought to how I could possibly make the process automated. Although I do completely understand that for a fraction of the cost of creating new technology, I could simply hire someone else to do the painting. Ah well…dreaming can be fun.
