Interesting.....clearly it is a very low tech solution. However, I submit it is an airbrush or airgun, albeit, very low PSI!!! He is using the basic principles of using air through an orifice to create a vacuum to draw paint into it and spray it. I give the man credit for coming up with a low dollar solution. It clear works for him, but it also means you have to be able to get your head close to the paint work too and therefore inhale the fumes too.
