Abstract
Traditional computer graphics packages have several drawbacks, including a crude use of metaphor for virtual tools, an indirect interaction technique, and limited orientation and size of the display. To create a more immersive, natural painting environment, CoolPaint uses real paintbrushes instrumented with six-degree-of-freedom trackers and a large-scale tabletop display. The painting interaction occurs directly on the display surface, removing the layer of abstraction found with mouse or stylus input. The paintbrushes maintain their semantics through the use of corresponding 3-dimensional virtual models for each brush. User evaluations show that CoolPaint is easy to use, fun, and provides more expressiveness than a tablet and stylus input device. CoolPaint provides a proof of concept for the use of direct interaction in digital painting, and could be combined with existing paint and brush models to create a sophisticated yet natural painting system.
