The Mitsubishi XT-1000 is a flat visual terminal which has a transparent touch tablet with a 640x400 dot liquid crystal display (LCD). The XT-1000 is touch-sensitive, having the capability of selecting a single pixel through any blunt, pointed object. SiliconPaint is a graphics program for the XT-1000. Many of its features are similar to the features of MacPaint for Macintosh. These features include drawing figures, manipulating files, editing, entering text, and filling shapes with patterns. Many operations are executed using a pen on the surface of the XT-1000, though some, such as manipulating files and entering text, require a keyboard. SiliconPaint is compatible with MacPaint in that files created on the XT-1000 can be accessed through MacPaint and vice versa. The purpose of SiliconPaint is in demonstrate how a device like the XT-1000 can be used as a viable alterative user-interface to the mouse, CRT, and keyboard.
