Create Art With Mouse Cursor Path


It turns out that when you track and draw all your mouse movements on a blank canvas, it will be a form of modern art. IOGraphica, when enabled, will do all the drawing at the background reflecting your mouse’s movement while you are working on your computer all day long.

The lines represent your mouse’s movement. When your cursor stops moving, it will be indicated by a dot. The longer the cursor stays at the same position, the bigger the dot will be. Clicks are not being tracked though.

Here’s how my graph looks like after 2 hours of tracking:

You can also make your desktop as the background instead of a blank canvas. When you select that option, IOGraphica will capture a screenshot of the window you are currently working on, and start tracking as usual.

It can really get pretty interesting

    @Ankit: It’s really cool being able to see exactly how your mouse move around your screen for the past hours.

    Tea break dots are particularly funny.
