"Most drawing tools/pens we use today allow only a one-way flow of
ink, and we are oblivious to how the content of the tool came to
exist inside. What if we could not only have control over the outflow
of the ink, but also have influence on what goes inside? Indeed, old
fountain pens served as both tools to pick up and release the ink,
and paintbrushes still preserve that function. We bring back this
tradition of a drawing tool as both an input and output device, but
instead of picking up the liquid ink, I/O Brush lifts up and captures
photons."

Thanks for that, the brush aside I can see the 'sample & paint' workflow as
being a very creative way to storyboard interactions. Would be a nice toy
for brainstorming. I wonder if the software behind it will become available,
in an ideal world these features would be added on to Denim.

" Our current development includes the technology that allows artistic
creations not only to be appreciated from a fixed point in time, but as an
active portrait with the memory of its process of creation. This way, the
stories about the evolving creation are part of the creation that could be
shared, and hopefully appreciated by its viewers. The brush strokes artists
make on the canvas will be linked to the movies that documents where the
artist's had picked up that certain materials"
