This weekend, rediscover the joy of painting without all the mess. With a plugin for Adobe Photoshop, two standalone apps, and a web-based painting app, we have artistic apps for everyone. Whether you’re a finger painter, doodler or professional artist, we look forward to seeing what you create with air painting. We hope you’ll share your pictures on Facebook and Twitter.
