When everybody Zig, you should Zag. WACOM just did that with Inkling!!! A pressure sensitive pen that will transform regular paper into a digital one, a tablet if you will. This is a mind-blowing development and so much in tune with what WACOM stands for and strives to do the best, and that is to get the most life like experience of drawing on real paper.
I was waiting on getting an iPad, hoping a better way of sketching will be introduced on it (or any other tablet for that matter). I was hoping WACOM will pick this up and they did introduce a stylus for the iPad…
but that had none of the pressure sensitivity they are so famous for and best in the market really. They were very much dependent on the tablet makers on that regard.
But even drawing on glass using a Cintiq could never be like drawing on real paper – they got it! I think the days of drawing in my Moleskin are rapidly coming back – don’t you?
