    Default Inkling

    Have you guys seen the Inkling from Wacom?
    I really want on and I want it now. Looks brilliant for mapping, but especially for creating objects like city icons, trees, mountains quickly without needing a scanner.

    that's bloody awesome.
    Unfortunately for me, i suck at drawing on paper so it might not be so great for me, but I can see how some people require one immediately

    I think I've just found my Christmas present! Thanks Clercon!!

    169 Euros which is about (£150 / US$ 250) is pretty great value....cheaper than my tablet was.

    The thing which make me want to buy this (over just scanning a drawing) is it can record lines in vector and saves to SVG.

    It comes out at the end of September, can't wait to read the reviews!

    Great find, Clercon!

    Another link to it's features and uses here.

    A coworker of mine has that thing, he's quite happy with it. At least I think it's this one - similar features and similar looks. He's out of the office, I may borrow and test it.

    Interesting and maybe great. I don't really care a lot for drawing with a ball point pen but hey, whatever.

    It says 'coming mid-September' so shouldn't be around just yet.

    It solves the battery problem in a pen that's not on a tablet - so I'm guessing this will also solve the pressure sensitivity with tablets. If they can plug that box into an iPad connector, or a usb, then that should work on all tablets. I'm guessing we'll see pressure sensitive tablet drawing within 6 months using this technology.

    Looks very cool, but I'm going to hold off until I see some side by side comparisons of the sketches with the digital 'likeness'. As soon as someone gets one please post it here!

    Eh. I applied to be a tester for this one (wasn't announced at the time) but never heard back. Looks pretty cool!
