In anticipation of Game Three of the Eastern Conference Semifinals between the Philadelphia Flyers and the New Jersey, the Flyers paint the Wells Fargo Center parking lot in orange with “Good Luck” twitter messages using a vehicle the Flyers have dubbed “FLYERBOT”.

The photo above is a sample of tweets along with the Flyers name spanning 8ft of road surface painted by the FLYERBOT.

The Flyers are the first professional sports team to use this 2,200Ib robot attached to an SUV that will use 48 spray guns to create an art installation of twitter messages surrounding the Wells Fargo Center. The messages will be painted in an environmentally-friendly mixture of soy bean protein.

The original “Chalkbot” was created by Greg Baltus of American Roadprinting who was commissioned by LIVESTRONG and the Lance Armstrong Foundation to create a robot that could print messages of encouragement to riders in the Tour de France.

Printing begins on Wednesday, May 2 at 2:30 p.m.
