Wacom 'Inkling' Records Everything You Draw, Digitally Imports As Vector/Bitmap Graphics

August 30, 2011


This is the Wacom 'Inkling' ($200, mid next month), a special receiver and pressure sensitive ink pen that records your actual drawings for digital import and computer manipulation AS EITHER BITMAP OR VECTOR GRAPHIX!!!11 Some people might say it's magic, and those people would be 150% correct.

While there are other ink-to-digital pens out there, the difference here is Wacom's pressure technology. Recording 1024 levels of pressure, the Inkling will capture ever nuance in your drawings. This is how it works:

• Take the stylus and receiver out of the neat portable box.
• Clip the receiver on top of any paper notebook and start drawing. Don't worry about space: the receiver can store thousands of pages, according to Wacom.
• When you are done after a day, connect the receiver to the computer via USB and browse all your drawings, exporting the ones you like to Photoshop or Illustrator or any typical graphic format, from TIFF to JPG.

Not gonna lie, I could see myself drawing a whole lot of penises with one of these. Like easily OVER NINE THOUSAND. Quintuple digits. Enough to fill a swimming pool.

Thanks to Andy, who knew an artist once. A con artist. He stole my money and then skipped town!
