New Sketch Drawing


When was the last time you sat down with a pencil and paper and drew something? For many of us the answer is high school art class or that Paint and Sip evening you went to a while back. Aside from professionals and a few dedicated hobbyists, few of us make time for sketching, doodling, or any other form of visual art in our lives.

But, according to a fascinating new study, the right answer is: whenever the last time was that you tried to learn something new. Put away the highlighter (really, science shows they're worse than useless) and skip the flash cards. The fastest way to cram new information into your brain is by drawing it, concludes the research.

You're probably not using the best, research-backed study technique

The setup of the studies by a Canadian research team was simple and may remind you of college language or science classes -- a group of volunteers was asked to memorize a list of words or definitions. Half were instructed to repeatedly write them down. The others were told to draw them in order to memorize them. Who did better when tested for recall?

The doodlers were the hands-down winners.

And, no, it didn't matter in the slightest if participants showed any artistic ability. After just 40 seconds of low-quality sketching, subjects not only remembered significantly more, they also recalled more detail and context about the words and ideas they were studying. In short, they learned more, faster.


Why is drawing such a powerful way to study? To figure this out, the researchers tried to narrow down what exactly about drawing was so effective. Would tracing an existing drawing of an idea have the same effect? Would looking at someone else's visual representation? While both of these approaches were better than just reading over a word or concept, drawing beat them all.

The researchers hypothesize that's because drawing gives your brain so many different ways to engage with new material -- you have to figure out how to draw it by imagining it in detail in your mind, you experience the physical feeling of rendering that idea, and then, in the end, you look at a visual representation of it.

The bottom line is simple: Most of us are probably not usingthe best techniques to study. And drawing is the top of the heap when it comes to research-backed approaches. Not only will it help you get smarter fast, but drawing is also so simple and discreet that you can use it in almost any setting -- from a lecture hall to a meeting room.

'Drawing improves memory across a variety of tasks and populations, and the simplicity of the strategy means that it can be used in any setting where it's OK to doodle,' sums up the Association for Psychological Science post highlighting the findings.

So next time you want to learn, don't read or write. Doodle instead.

Unicode character recognition!

This is a tool to help you find Unicode characters. Finding a specific character whose name you don't know is cumbersome. On, all you need to know is the shape of the character!

How do I use it?

Draw your character as best you can in the 'drawbox'. You can do this by clicking and holding the left mouse button and moving around. Draw as many strokes as you need to, then click 'Recognize' to start the recognition. If you want to clear the canvas and the results click on 'Clear'.

My character isn't found!

It might simply not be in the database yet. For the time being, I only use glyphs from free Unicode fonts to avoid licensing problems. The algorithms behind the character recognition could handle many more characters, so I hope to extend the database in the near future. See the Unicode list if you want to know which Unicode blocks are currently supported.

If you can't find Chinese, Japanese or Korean glyphs, it is because I have yet to find a good free CJK font to use . Google recently created Noto, which aims to offer free high-quality typefaces for all languages with a very permissive license (Apache 2.0). The CJK font they include seems to be excellent, too. I do have plans to include it, but sadly I'm currently not having much time to improve Shapecatcher.

Alternatively, shapecatcher might not perform well on your character. Try to draw it as precisely as you can. Drop me an e-mail if you think that the results are particularly disappointing.

Help! It doesn't work at all!

This project is still in a beta stage. The drawing box relies on HTML5 features, so you need a newer browser. I have tested the site succesfully with Firefox 6 and recent versions of Chrome, Opera, Safari.

If you get a 'Bad Gateway' error, the recognition engine can't be reached or is currently offline. Feel free to inform me by e-mail about it.

I like this project, how can I help you?

Spread the word! Also both praise and criticism are very welcome!

Do you support Latex characters?

No, but if you want the commands for special characters in Latex, take a look at Detexify.

I want to know more, how does this work?
