Hand-painting has always been awkward on digital devices, and the interfaces have never quite matched the intimacy of the paintbrush. Even on the canvas-like iPad, using your finger or a stylus to paint is clumsy and brutal compared to a good old-fashioned brush and paper. But get this, grandpa: the Nomad Brush is here to push analogue painting right out of the picture, once and for all.
Okay, so perhaps it does just look like a regular paintbrush. And by all means, go try using an ordinary brush on your touch-screen. Once you’re done dusting your display, come and try the Nomad Brush…
You see, what sets this brush apart are its highly conductive bristles, which interact with the touch screen with extreme precision – keeping the artist in full control. Plus, it requires no power, no cleaning and won’t lose its bristles in your painting. Progress!
The Nomad Brush works well with a variety of existing painting apps, and not only works on the iPad, but is compatible with Android and Galaxy devices too. Fickle artists can rest at ease, knowing they have a canvas to paint on whatever platform they prefer.
