Wacom Inkling Drawing ToolWednesday, August 31, 2011
Wacom has created a brand new device called Inkling that converts hand-drawn sketches into digital vector images automatically.
The device consists of two parts: a stylus with a pressure-sensitive ballpoint and a receiver that stores and converts the sketches.
To start using Inkling, users affix the receiver to a piece of paper, turn it on and start drawing with the stylus, ensuring the line of sight between pen and receiver isn’t broken.
The device even lets users create layers, which can then be transferred to a computer for editing on Photoshop, Illustrator or Autodesk. Files can also be saved in JPG, BMP, TIFF, PNG, SVG and PDF formats.
Inkling will be available to purchase for $199.00 sometime in mid September. Check out Wacom for more info.
