Wacom will be releasing soon their new Inkling digital sketch pen. They have created a both useful and impressive tool for designers that can be used with everyday work and is especially great for creative brainstorming.
““The Inkling digital sketch pen captures a digital likeness of your work while you sketch with its ballpoint tip on any sketchbook or standard piece of paper.
In addition to capturing your sketch, stroke by stroke, Inkling allows you to create layers in digital files while you sketch on paper. Digital files are transferred to your computer using the Inkling Sketch Manager software, and later, exported to applications such as Adobe® Photoshop® and Illustrator®.””
The video below gives you a better idea of the impressive performance of the digital pen.
The Inkling will be released mid September 2011.
