Shaper is a research system for exploring multi-touch and pen UIs for creating precise line art. The current prototype demonstrates a gesture and widget-based UI for designing and manipulating high fidelity logos and other artwork. This interface attempts promote the notion of interacting directly with lines instead of through intermediary control points, although underlying all Shaper drawings is a network of Bezier curves and circle arcs, which can be seen in the apple and shell images above.
