Computational Media Design
  masXXX is a class taught by John Maeda dealing with interactions between physical form and computation. We are using small serial processors as a hardware platform, and Processing, a software graphics platform developed in the Aesthetics and Computation Group.


  PointBrush is an input device made from a paint brush. It has a bend sensor hidden inside the bristles that detects the force with which a user is painting.

PointBrush is an input to a spinning colored design made in Processing. The harder a user paints, the faster the crosshairs spin, the thicker they get, and the deeper their color becomes. Since PointBrush gives no positional information, the crosshairs move on their own.
