Artstroke Rules! (DA Aprilfools) by Deligaris Artstroke Rules! (DA Aprilfools) by Deligaris
Hi everyone! I'm proud to announce that I've been lucky to be selected as a beta tester, in order to try out ArtStroke!

"ArtStroke is DeviantArt's new wearable 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."

I've been using ArtStroke for a couple of weeks, and I was amazed by how much fun it is to draw while wearing it. It is now easy for me to measure the amount of my daily brush strokes, and keep track of my progress. It's also extremely light and comfortable, and the battery lasts for several days.

ArtStroke is a great motivator as well, "gamifying" the whole drawing experience. I'm usually pretty bored to draw all those individual hairs and dragon scales in my paintings; but no more! ArtStroke made me want to beat my previous record again and again, and earn a new achievement! In my latest record, I almost reached 30k strokes in one day, before my hand got numb. Could you beat THAT? :)

Another upcoming feature is that users will also be able to share and compare their performance with their fellow artists, so I'm looking forward to that.

At last but not least, whenever I'm not drawing, ArtStroke doubles as a watch; now, how AWESOME is that!

The only flaw of this device is that it's ugly as hell, but that'a minor drawback.

All in all, ArtStroke is a great productivity booster, and I think that once you wear that, you'll never do without it again.

I think it's more of a psychological thing. It's like a video game with levels and each time you beat a level you get a rush out of it. So it's not that the gadget itself makes you more productive but it's that it tricks your brain into believing that it is with how it functions. So I think it's more of a psychological trickery and not the device itself.

Aside from that I agree with the previous comment; your eyes are pretty :)

I was sporting this look back in the late 90s... it wasn't popular backed then.

Your photoshop job is the most impressing of the other people who have done it. :XD: Also, nice shirt! ;) I love He-men, I've been trying to collect the toys whenever I can. Do you happen to remember where you bought the shirt?
