Microsoft Launches the Art of Touch With HTML 5

Microsoft has launched a new site called the ‘Art of Touch’ to encourage the artistic creativity of netizens.

With three different width paint brushes and six effects, the Art of Touch combines the canvas feature of HTML5 with JavaScript libraries to let users create computer-generated animations. Users can print out their work, create T-shirts and coffee mugs and share on social networks too. Good creators could win a computer as a part of Microsoft’s contest.

This site works only with HTML5-capable browsers and doesn’t work with the older versions of browsers and tablets like iPads.
