Bill Buxton – Microsoft project Gustav and Wacom

Look for the tag ‘Wacom’ in the video to go directly to Bill showing Gustav painting software from Microsoft running on a 10 finger touch enabled Wacom Cintiq 21UX prototype pen/tablet.

Microsoft Research revealed Project Gustav

Microsoft Project Gustav

Project Gustav is a realistic painting-system prototype that enables artists to become immersed in the digital painting experience. The natural interface makes Project Gustav ideal for hobbyists and professional artists alike. Project Gustav achieves a high level of interactivity and realism by leveraging the computing power of modern GPUs, taking full advantage of multitouch and Wacom tablet input technology and our novel, natural media-modeling and brush-simulation algorithms. Our prototype provides convincingly realistic models for pastel and oil media, with more to come.
