Create and search for art using your mind

Introducing thoughtART Technology

A few years ago, deviantART teamed up with several university laboratories across the United States, and we are proud to finally announce the fruits of our efforts. Thanks to recent advancements in neurological science, we're unveiling a revolutionary new platform in artistic creation. Our device uses touch-sensitive pads built into your existing keyboard and mouse to monitor your brainwaves and transmit them directly to our site. Excited? Welcome to the new age of thoughtART Technology!

What is thoughtART?

It may sound like something from science fiction, but the technology behind thoughtART is actually quite simple. Each person has unique patterns mapped into their brains correlating with the cadence of the firing of their synapses. Our new platform taps into how the brain processes these synapses and translates them digitally. In the same way that you can "see" an image in your mind when starting on an artistic endeavor, this feature strives to create that right on the digital page without the artist lifting a finger!

The Browser-Brain Interface

When you connect to thoughtART, the technology syncs with your nervous system to discover your artistic style, preferred palette, and ideas that have been floating in your head that you just haven't had time to put to paper. Once connected, the system measures the pulses generated by your temporal lobe and your levels of acetylcholine to read the exact thoughts you're experiencing. The process is 100% harmless, and you will experience no discomfort while your brainmap is being generated.



Create with thoughtART
Happy April Fools' Day 2014!

Put aside your brushes, pencils, and tablets, because thanks to the round-the-clock efforts of deviantART's partnering science labs, you only need one tool to create the masterpiece you've always dreamed of: your mind. You'll never have to lift a brush again.



Search with thoughtART
Happy April Fools' Day 2014!

Take a break from creation and spend a few minutes getting inspired. Using the same state-of-the-art technology, deviantART has also calibrated the system to help discover the art of your dreams. Sit back with thoughtART Search, and let your brain tell you what it wants to see. (Although the process is completely safe, we recommend resting the creative brain at 30-minute intervals.)

Your Observations

Since this is a brand-new product, we'd love to hear your feedback! What type of art are you generating with thoughtART Create? What does your brain like to browse in thoughtART Search? Let us know!

Well there was that one time when it actually drew what I was thinking of

It was creepy.

In other news, I missed out getting the badge because I was too worried to press the voting button. Who knew what the hell that would do?!
