Inspired by famous artists such as Pablo Picasso, the Air Pencil app creatively transforms any iPhone device into a strobe light to create beautiful flashlight style drawings that are suspended in time. The app allows anyone to draw using light and capture the imagery in still life to share on social media platforms.

The Air Pencil app is a fun and digital way to capture some of the artistic techniques that many famous artists such as Picasso would use. Back then the light images were captured using flashlights and specific shutter speeds on a camera. Now with the Air Pencil all of the movements are captured seamlessly through a smartphone. The app utilizes the phone's flashlight allowing the user to move the device to create shapes, letters and designs. Within moments the app registers the light movements and captures them in still life.
