Artists can now sample colors, textures and even movements directly from the environment for use in a composition (http://www.livescience.com/php/multimedia/imagedisplay/img_display.php?pic=051028_color_dream_02.jpg&cap=Colorful+Dreams.+credit%3A+MIT+Media+Lab%22Colorful+Dreams%22+is+an+example+of+what+can+be+done+with+the+I/O+brush.+credit%3A+MIT+Media+Lab).
