Now, car that paints your picture while you drive
London – A Barcelona-based painter has developed a computer programme that paints your image as you drive and creates a portrait based on your journey.
Artist Sergio Albiac installed the software as part of a branding exercise for a hybrid fuel Lexus IS 300h.
Albiac took a photo of Belgian art collector Walter Vanhaerents and uploaded it to the programme that then created a portrait of him using Albiac’s hand brushwork, the Mirror reported.
The painting changed as Vanhaerents drove and it was dependant on his speed and choice of fuel.
When he drove slowly and used electric power the software produced cooler, sharper colours, while driving faster on petrol created a picture with broad, expressionistic brushstrokes in warmer colours.
