Corel today announced Painter® Freestyle(TM) Beta, the world's first motion-enabled digital art app for Leap Motion Controllers, to be showcased at South by Southwest (SXSW). Using a motion sensor, Painter Freestyle lets you paint with your fingers and control basic tasks such as selecting brushes, media and key commands, simply through gestures (no mouse or keyboard required!). Painter Freestyle is powered by the Corel® Painter® engine and includes several familiar brushes for artists of all levels to easily get started.
Pushing the Boundaries of Digital Art
"As pioneers in the digital art world, we're always looking for ways to push the boundaries of digital art and to bring new forms of expression into the digital art experience. By integrating the Leap Motion technology into Painter Freestyle, we've built a completely new, but very natural and expressive way to paint digitally," said Andy Church, Senior Product Manager for Corel Painter. "We're eager to see how this new technology will evolve the digital and performance art worlds. By introducing a beta version of Painter Freestyle, we're able to listen to hobbyists, professionals and new artists, which will help us create an optimal user experience for our full line of art software."
"Leap Motion is excited by the application Corel is developing-tools that help people create digital art are a natural fit with our vision for using motion-control technology," said Andrew Miller, President and COO of Leap Motion. "As Leap Motion works to evolve the future of human/computer interaction and provide a fundamentally better computing experience, Corel's Painter Freestyle offers new possibilities for general consumers as well as artists by developing new brush capabilities, digital canvas interaction and forms of artistic expression."
Creating New Artistic Expression Capabilities
Motion control digital painting provides a more expressive and natural way to paint or draw with the computer. Whether art is a passion, career or hobby, Painter Freestyle expands your creative possibilities and is an entertaining way to experiment with digital art.
"The seamless Painter Freestyle experience with Leap Motion makes the process of digital painting all the more attractive and accessible to people-it's simply so much fun!" said Jeremy Sutton, Corel Painter Master. "As a professional artist, I can make marks in Painter Freestyle that simply wouldn't exist otherwise with any other tools or media. For instance, the use of multi-strokes, essentially paint coming out of our fingertips, is something that could only have been dreamt of previously. This is not just an incremental improvement in a paint medium or art tool. This is truly a dramatic paradigm shift that will revolutionize the way we create and interact with the computer."
Painter Freestyle Feature Highlights
-- Select from several brushes including graffiti, airbrush, sargent, oil, chalk, ink or fractal -- Add multiple paper textures including wood grain, pebble board or fine dots -- Create multiple strokes using up to 10 fingers -- Control brush and color selection and brush resizing with motion gestures -- Use non-reflective objects such as chopsticks to provide more granular control
Demo Painter Freestyle at the Leap Motion Experience During SXSW
The public will have its first chance to try Painter Freestyle and other applications in development for the Leap Motion Controller during South by Southwest (SXSW) 2013 in Austin, Texas at the fun and immersive Leap Motion Experience. Join Corel Painter Jeremy Sutton who will be painting live and demonstrating the expressive capabilities of Painter Freestyle. Visitors can let their hands and fingers explore what makes Leap Motion one of the most exciting technologies today. The Leap Motion Experience will be open at 515 Cesar Chavez (the Old Iron Works parking lot) between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Central time, March 9-11.
Availability and Pricing
Corel Painter Freestyle Beta will be available as a free download for Mac and Windows users from Airspace, the Leap Motion application store on May 13, 2013.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before.

[session] The IoT Evolution Will Be Led by Novel ‘Abstraction’ By @InteractorTeam | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M
Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software in the hope of capturing value in IoT. Although IoT is relatively new in the market, it has already gone through many promotional terms such as IoE, IoX, SDX, Edge/Fog, Mist Compute, etc. Ultimately, irrespective of the name, it is about deriving value from independent software assets participating in an ecosystem as one comprehensive solution.
