A new way of painting

Digital technology has been the catalyst to the change of our way of living. Who thought that 15 years ago, when we would send paper letters to our friends to tell them about our summer vacation, that nowadays doing that task would be as simple as attaching some pictures to an e-mail and send it and our friends receive the message in less than 5 minutes?

Digital technology can also change the way we produce art. And here's the perfect example: a new paint brush that uses a built-in camera and a special canvas to allow painters to create modern-day paintings by using the textures, colors and all kinds of surrounding elements.

This gadget basically “lifts up and captures photons”, allowing artists to draw with “special ink” picked up from their immediate environment.

Check out the video below to see the paintbrush in action:
