Google’s Scrying Pen AI Experiment will try to help you draw a cat

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Google’s AI Experiments are fun showcases for feats of artificial intelligence the company’s research has enabled. Scrying Pen is a new one that uses algorithms trained by data from 2016’s Quick, Draw! experiment to show a path to draw one of a set of objects, like a cat or a hand.

Scrying Pen analyzes your inputs to try to predict what you’ll draw next in the context of the model you’ve selected, displaying a number of its best guesses as to your next moves as green lines.

This app uses machine learning and AR to teach you how to draw

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND


For some people drawing comes naturally. But, if you’re anything like me, your stick figures look like misshapen horrors for whom death would surely be a relief. Enter Sketch AR: the AI-powered app that aims to make you a better artist regardless of your current skill. The idea is pretty simple: you draw a few plus-signs on a piece of paper, wall, or sleeping friend’s face and then point your smartphone’s camera at it. From there you can cycle through point-by-point lessons that help you learn to associate free space with the next layer of a drawing. It’s quite intuitive and…

Apple’s latest patent teases a Pencil that can draw in mid-air

Apple's next Pencil could eschew the iPad Pro entirely. The Cupertino company has filed a patent for a stylus that can be used on any flat surface, and maybe even in the air, as spotted by Dutch site TechTastic. The patent title being "Content Creati…

Apple Patent Describes Stylus That Can Draw 3D Objects in Midair

A recently discovered Apple patent could hint at the company’s future plans for its Apple Pencil — and they stretch beyond the iPad.

The patent in question, titled “Content Creation Using Electronic Input Device on Non-Electronic Surfaces,” basically describes an Apple Pencil-like stylus that could be used to draw on any flat surface or even three-dimensionally in the air.

The text is pretty vague on how the stylus would achieve this, however. The patent mentions that it could use “a motion or orientation sensor, a camera, or an electromagnetic- or sound-based triangulation scheme.”

This sensor could be placed on an external device, such as a notebook or desktop computer, or on a standalone product.

In other words, the product could be used to “draw” on any flat surface. But the patent doesn’t stop there. It also describes a way to track the data generated by the stylus in three dimensions without contact with a surface. Basically, it could be used to “draw” 3D objects in the air.

Draw on Any Surface

The true utilization of the patent goes beyond drawing or painting on an iPad. Such a device could let graphic designers and artists use any flat surface, like a table, as a sort of “Wacom tablet,” allowing them to draw or write within a graphics program on a notebook or desktop computer.

Of course, with the 3D applications, the stylus could be used to create, edit or manipulate a 3D object in a program like AutoCAD. With the advent of 3D printing, this could go hand-in-hand with home creators using the nascent technology.

The patent also notes that communication between the stylus and an external device isn’t “uni-directional.” That means feedback or other information could be relayed back to the user through an LED screen, a small onboard display, or another vector.

The patent was first filed on July 14, 2017 by three Apple engineers. It was made public on Jan. 18, and was first spotted by Dutch site Techtastic.

Of course, since it is just a patent, there’s no guarantee that we’ll see the stylus device ever reach the market. Similarly, even if the patent’s tech does reach an Apple product, we have no idea when such a product could launch.

A recent study asked people to draw the internet. Here’s what they came up with


According to a recent study the internet is a blue wavy place that’s used for connecting to people. This insight comes from one hundred people who were asked by cloud service company Summit Hosting to describe how they saw the internet, a computer virus, and the cloud. The best part: they each provided drawings. Some pictures were on the nose, when asked to draw the cloud a lot of people drew a cloud: Some of the most interesting submissions came when the researchers asked the respondents to draw the internet: Others drawings represented a more esoteric approach to depicting the…
