This digital painting tablet presents an interactive palette of technicolor shapes and converts young visitors into collaborative, avant-garde artists.
This interactive, entitled Infinite Creativity, is an innovative multitouch, multi-user collaborative drawing experience created by Second Story for Adobe Systems and the Spirit of Silicon Valley exhibition at the Tech Museum of Innovation. With an array of playful brushes to choose from, visitors swipe one or more fingers to make colorful swirls, blobs, lines, and other shapes. These creations are then broadcast to a shared screen, where they join the work of other visitors to create a constantly-evolving, time-based stream of collective art. Through this engaging experience, visitors learn that technology can be used to express their creativity, collaborate with others, and share their ideas.
Since its debut, Infinite Creativity has been installed in several new locations, including the FITC conference in Amsterdam, Adobe Max 2011, and The Leonardo Museum in Salt Lake City.

The simplest way to describe Infinite Creativity is as a giant digital canvas. Visitors use their hands to create works of digital art on a touch pad screen. Their art is then combined with creations from other visitors using the station and displayed on a large screen for all to see..Infinite Creativity is a reflection of what drives Adobe—creativity, collaboration, innovation...
