Hi Kickstarter! Thanks for checking out our project. We're really excited to show you the Flow - a paintbrush made specifically for touch screen devices.

One thing we're really interested in is bringing traditional experiences from the real world to the digital world by creating products that bridge the gap. Touch screen devices like the iPad are amazing, but they can't replace the tactile experiences we're all used to. A great example of this is painting on the iPad. There's no mess, no supplies, and you can bring your work with you wherever you go. Amazing!

The problem is that you're limited to painting with either your finger or a stylus. Finger painting on the iPad becomes cumbersome after a while. When your finger starts to sweat you introduce unwanted friction between you and the screen. Using a stylus is great for sketching, but not for painting. With most styluses using a foam or rubber tip, it doesn't feel like painting at all. 

So we set out to create a real paintbrush with actual bristles that works on all capacitive touch screen devices like those listed below:

iPad (both generations)

iPhone (all generations)

iPod Touch (all generations)

ANY touch screen Android phone or tablet

webOS  - Pre, Pre Plus, Pre 2

Tablet PCs such as the Dell Inspiron One 2305, Gateway One 2x4800, HP Touchsmart 600-1350, HP Touchsmart 300-1122, Lenovo Ideacentre B308, and Sony Vaio VPC-J118F8

We spent months refining the tip of the Flow to be as close to a real paintbrush as possible and we're really excited to finally share our work with you.

Again, thanks so much for checking out our project and have a great day.

We'd like to give massive shout out to Percept Media for their incredible work on the demo video and Shardool Pandit for helping us out with his magical photo editing skills.
