Create with color

digital finger painting for kids

Create With Color is a multitouch finger painting app built for the Birmingham Museum of Art for their Bart’s ArtVenture hands-on gallery for children.

Kids can paint with their hands with brush size reflecting the size of their touch. Colours can be selected by the on-screen colour picker or by stomping on one of the 6 hardware foot switches located below the screen. When users are finished with their creation they can send their painting to an email address that they enter via a customised on-screen keyboard.

PixelBender and blob size

Create With Color utilises my PixelBender paint mixing and TUIO 1.1 for dynamic brush size.
