Painting on real objects



Deepak Bandyopadhyay, Ramesh Raskar, Henry Fuchs have built a prototype system for virtual painting on real movable objects. A project from 2001 that should by now be easier to democratize!

Imagine a world where all the objects around you can be animated and augmented interactively in real time; where you can, for instance, paint virtual designs on objects in the environment, which then stay in place as you modify or move them around! This opens up new possibilities for interaction in augmented environments, and gives rise to new applications in tele-immersion, medicine, architecture, art and user interfaces.


Check also Kimiko Ryokai's digital paintbrush. Her brush allows artists to draw digitally with an "ink" they just picked up from their immediate environment.
