Social-880x440-1 by marioluevanosIntroducing ArtStroke from deviantart: Track your strokes. Stay inspired.

Home to over 38 million artists globally, DeviantArt is proud to host a community of like-minded creatives inspiring each other to be the best they can be. The very act of uploading each masterpiece broadcasts both the artist's stunning vision and the years of accumulated artistic skill. Such talent doesn't come easily. The path to improving one's craft is practice, practice, practice. In a world where technological advancements are shaping the landscape of our everyday lives, we knew there had to be a way to gamify artistic discipline and satisfy our every creative itch.

Well, now there is.

ArtStroke is a new device that encourages daily creativity by recording every flick of your wrist. Just strap it on and grab the tool you're most passionate about. ArtStroke’s built-in precision engine detects that you're about to get those creative juices flowing and begins counting your daily strokes for analysis via the companion app, available for iOS and Android. Brushstrokes, pen strokes, stylus strokes — our cutting-edge technology will record and report your progress every step of the way.

You knew you won some of us over DA. That's why you had the Buy Now button move out of our reach. This could actually be a thing. You know this DA. Don't crush our dreams of mind boggling, world changing, technology.
