Microsoft Paint can now do the painting for you. The launch of the Microsoft Copilot+ PCs (a new Surface Pro and Surface Laptop to anyone else), includes the addition of a new AI image generation tool that will turn doodles into something less abstract.

What's most impressive is that it works in real time, adjusting the resulting AI-generated image as you sketch. The new tool could give the ancient Paint a new leaf of life.
