very cool - but what I crave, with my Wacom Intuos, is the tactile feel of sketching on paper, the resistance that you dont get on plastic or glass. I actually taped paper over the intuos surface and it works quite well, but it would be great to see this type of pen solution working "live" like the intuos - being able to choose your paper type to sketch on - and of course felt tips would be excellent
It look to be a very good idea but, apart for the vectors, it's only a portable scanner! And I really don't know why we use digital media to mimic traditional media... I really like working with the table and photoshop or zbrush but true artist from the past didn't use them and still made wonders!! It's look like we can't live without level corrections and color balance (or control+Z...). Today everyone is an artist... indeed progress is nice!
I'm not sure if that will really become a breaktrhough in sketching - maybe for vector-artists, but with no realtime feedback of the recording process you'll never know how usable the layers are. I guess it will be niche - product or some nice tool for some of us.
Wished to see something on a ipad or android tablet with pressure sensitivy, maybe its just a "beta" product and will be transformed into a dongle/add-on for tablets soon when computing of inputs are near realtime.
WOW, WOW and WOW!
This looks amazing and I wonder what you could do with this 15 years ago when you were pencil sketching your way through highschool :) Think about digitizing all of your sketches.
Can't wait to see what you will be able to do with this big bro.
I loved the movies made for the @wacom Inkling so I looked up who made them - it was @hranimation and you can see the making of it at the following link - http://www.hranitzky.com/movies/inkling_makingof.mov
@connollydavid Livescribe looks very interesting too, although with very different focus. I don't think pure sketching was the aim here.
@ronenbekerman No, pure sketching obviouly wasn't the aim but technology behind motion sensor to record hand movement looks very similar...
hi, i'm the only one thinking that it can be awesome to use.. directly on the screen (maybe protected by a glass).. should be good for modify drawing and .... you know like having a cintiq
ù@SimoneCarratù Not sure, but I would really like to see my sketch in real-time on a screen if I like too... a wireless linkup so you can draw on paper and see it live on screen and maybe even manipulate it while you go!!! that could be really awesome - The real feel and fidelity of true paper but with the power of digital manipulation and review too.
@ZahirOuld-hocine Indeed, Why the hell do they announce it without it being available!!! Taht would have been the fastest purchase I would ever make ;)
Best invention sinds the wheel i would say :) An amazing tool for designing. Now just try to wait a moth before we can buy it. Cant wait
@WVanspranghe I never been so excited about a product ever before! I love sketching so much, but just got used to how better things are digitally on PS or Artrage which is much more sketch friendly app...
I must have this Inkling thing and fast!
