Hanging With Apple in the Big Apple
Wanted to catch you up with some Sensu news. Last week we were featured on Wired magazine's website. As one of Gadgetlab's "Gifts of the Future", we were reviewed alongside several other tech products including a limited edition "Back to the Future" Delorean.
Teamed Up With Apple
Big thanks to David Nash of Apple. He saw Sensu on Kickstarter and thought teachers in the NYC school system would love it. Monday night, Maggie from our team was in NYC appearing on stage with Apple to present Sensu and talk a bit about our take on digital painting and our passion to fill the world with more artists.
Our presentation was received with a lot of enthusiasm by the 300+ teachers in attendance. Many are eager to have Sensu in their classrooms, but they'll have to wait until after all of our Kickstarter backers get theirs in January.
Everything is still on track and on-time. We can't wait to get these into your hands! 7600 Sensu brush heads are being built over the next 48 hours. The rest of the components are coming together well.
Sensu in the Wild
Thought you might like to see Sensu in action. Below is a video clip of our friend Matt Lynaugh painting in the ArtRage app on his iPad. He had Sensu in his hand for only 2 days before he committed this session to film.
Matt is working in layers on top of a photo that he imported into ArtRage. In this mode he's chosen to allow the brush to select color from the original image. Each time he picks up his brush and sets it back down on the screen a new color is selected and can be used until he chooses to switch.
You can see how nicely Sensu moves on the screen. It has a lot of flexibility, but enough "snap" to come back to it's original shape. It has enough stiffness to allow the artist to open palettes and select menu items.
You can also see Matt using some nice multi-touch gesturing to change the size of the brush stroke.
Matt Lynaugh is a designer and illustrator living in Austin, TX. If you want to see more of Matt's iPad paintings visit www.mattlynaugh.com. Be sure to visit his painting-a-day blog.
