Studies have shown that doodling could improve memory retention by up to 30% and that exposing your brain to creating intricate patterns (i.e. adult colouring books) could relieve stress and anxiety. This project is a fun drawing application designed to highlight the touch functions of the Gen4 Displays. This project uses a gen4-uLCD-70DT which is perfect because of its size.
