Brushes of different widths and styles are the tools of the trade and a new installation at the Museum of Modern Art in New York sees these tools brought to life in the digital world. Microsoft Digital Art is a realistic painting system prototype created by Microsoft Research and was recently installed as part of the museum's Material Lab interactive installation.

The lab setup includes three terminals where users can draw and paint in oils, pastels and more, using their fingers or actual paintbrushes. If you're not in New York, you're going to want to go there after you watch this demo video:

The program runs through Aug. 29, and is free with museum admission and you can see some of the work crated using Digital Art in the online gallery.
