During a preview of Microsoft's annual TechFest event this week, the company's researchers showed a technology dubbed Project Gustav, which seeks to replicate the experience of painting without the mess. “Project Gustav is a realistic painting-system prototype that enables artists to become immersed in the digital painting experience. It achieves interactivity and realism by leveraging the computing power of modern GPUs, taking full advantage of multitouch and tablet input technology and our novel natural media-modeling and brush-simulation algorithms. Project Gustav is a great example of how Microsoft's research efforts are leading to exciting new technologies to support creativity.”
