Among the new gadgets that emerged out of the Next-Gen PC design competition is the Palette-Digital Artist. This is a palette that makes it possible to paint digitally on a touchscreen without using the mouse or a painting program.
The Palette-Digital Artist gives painting a more natural feel for those who care about that sort of thing and it comes with digital brushes or pens of different sizes that offer a host of high definition digital colors. The connectivity to computers and monitors is all done wirelessly. It uses a "Photo-optic visual sensor with color recognition," according to the competition page.
As a painting enthusiast, I find this palette very interesting.
