For those that claim to have zero artistic ability, this program is for you. We talk quite often about how easy it can be to personalize your home office by making your own art, but for some the mere mention of DIY makes the knees go weak. IOGraph is a program that traces your mouse path over time and creates custom abstract artwork while you're busy doing other things!

IOGraph tracks your mouse movements, making darker circles where it pauses for longer and thin scribbles when you're darting back and forth. Once the program is downloaded and running, you have two choices for saving your new masterpiece. You can either save it with a white background and print it off, make postcards or turn it into a t-shirt. Or, you can apply your desktop background making the picture transparent and the mouse tracks will keep on building more and more after time. How cool is that?

IOGraph is a free download for Windows, Mac, and Linux, so what are you waiting for? Get to mousing! Check out the final results put to use in a living room over on Flickr.
