Pitturino + Cromofono

After taking or chosing a picture on the App Pitturino you can click on a pixel. The App will convert the color coordinates of the selected pixel into the correspondant printing color coordinates (CMYK).
The app sends that coordinates to Pittuino that moves the 5 peristaltic pumps (one for each fundamental color).
FInally Pitturino drops the correct amount of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black and Water on the palette. The painter can mix the 5 components and use them to paint on the canvas.

This year in addition to Pitturino I will show another tool or better another Musical Instrument : The Cromofono. It is a device that can play the color of a picture.
It takes as input the HSV color coordinate of the central pixel in a Viewfinder.
The note played will be proportional (tuend) to the HUE value (three octaves mapped to the 360 values of -HUE) and the volume will be proportional to the V coordinate (VALUE).

So a player-painter can draw with a color produced by pitturino tuned to the desired note and after he can plays that note with Cromofono and create music from colors.
