Perfect For Art Teachers: New Program Tracks Mouse Movement, Makes Art

Tired of not being able to draw like Jackson Pollack? Know how to use a computer? Then you’re just a few clicks away from making some seriously interesting art that’s great for both teachers and students.

A new program called IOGraph is now available to the public and it tracks where you move your mouse on the screen and then turns it into an easy-to-understand chart. Think you could use a little bit of reorganization on your desktop? IOGraph can help you identify where you’re spending all your time. Writing a paper or correcting online coursework? IOGraph can show you just how little screen real estate you use (and encourage you to do a better job at spacing out your focus area.)

A bit about the program from the website:

Formerly known as MousePath it was made by Moscow designer Anatoly Zenkov to brighten up the routine work. Posting it at Flickr caused informal interest and afterward Anatoly Zenkov and his colleague Andrey Shipilov decided to evolve the app.

IOGraph — is an application that turns mouse movements into a modern art. The idea is that you just run it and do your usual day stuff at the computer. Go back to IOGraph after a while and grab a nice picture of what you’ve done!
