I/O Brush

DQ reader Daniel D'Avignon-Aubut sent me a link to an amazing piece of technology called the "I/O Brush." Here's a description from the website:
I/O Brush looks like a regular physical paintbrush but has a small video camera with lights and touch sensors embedded inside. Outside of the drawing canvas, the brush can pick up color, texture, and movement of a brushed surface. On the canvas, artists can draw with the special "ink" they just picked up from their immediate environment.

It's absolutely brilliant, and the video will blow your mind. Andy Warhold would have gone wild with this.

Here's the link:

Don't forget the video. It's a jaw-dropper.
