The chickens are coming home to roost. Somewhere before the end of the year I’ll need to buy another Mac just to hold all the painting, drawing, and photo enhancement apps I’ve picked up from the Mac App Store.
The latest must-have-but-probably-will-never-use app is called Eye Splatter Paint.
Somewhere there’s a donkey in a circus that dips its tail into a paint bucket and swishes it onto a canvas that can paint better than I can with Eye Splatter Paint (which at less than a dollar is far less expensive that teaching a donkey to use Photoshop on a Mac).
Think of iSight as a big motion detector. As you move your hands, fingers, face and any other bodily appendage that moves, Eye Splatter Paint picks up the motion and translates it into a painting.
By detecting motion in the Mac’s iSight camera, Eye Splatter Paint creates a unique painting every time (not unlike the donkey).
In fact, even if you leave the room, Eye Splatter Paint can create a unique painting masterpiece just from anything else that moves while you were gone.
You control a few parameters, too, including brush and color and size and filters. Begin painting by clicking the Start button. Stop by clicking Stop.
I don’t know of a less expensive method to create unique digital art without doing much.
If only there were a digital psychiatrist around to help decipher each image as to meaning.
