The Philips Drag & Draw installation basically “enables the user to paint via laser beams — simply wave the wand over the laser projection bucket, then use it to draw on any wall or surface.”


University researcher Daisuke Iwai has developed a new technology which allows people to paint using thermal vision technology. This system “can detect temperature change regions on a sensing surface as touch regions when objects hotter or colder than the surface touch it.”
