    I think it's the Bamboo...but I could be wrong on this.

    Unless I missed it somewhere, the Bamboo does not have tilt. The easiest way to check is to go to Wacom's site. For the visual people out there, they even have video demos of each model.

    A tablet is one of the things on my shopping (luxury) list. I used to be a talented young artist, but that was a long time ago, and I haven't done anything remotely similar to painting in nearly twenty years (note that I'm a shade below thirty). I'm getting back into it, and I'm excited about the prospect.

    The same applies for me, to some extent, as well cancerlad. I can honestly say that since I've found my long lost tablet that I haven't had as much fun since I was a kid and it has definitely brought it all back to me. No need to get some big expensive one, just one to get the juices flowin again and you will love it.

    Speaking of tablets---

    Anyone seen this: http://usb.brando.com.hk/prod_detail.php?prod_id=00855

    Watch the video of the "tablo" in action.

    I don't think it has pressure sensitivity, and not sure of the accuracy, but it could be neat...

    Very interesting... That might be a purchase for my next bonus check... which means a few years. I wonder if it might have pressure sensitivity of some sort. When you watch him draw the lines appear to have thickness differences, and the color is not always solid.

    I rather doubt it. Since you're applying the stylus to the notebook's LCD screen, I'd think increasing the pressure would be a Bad Idea™.

    It looks like it probably works in a fashion similar to that interactive whiteboard hack for the Wiimote we saw a while back: http://johnnylee.net/projects/wii/

    edit: watching that video again, I wonder if it uses distance from the screen as "pressure" and a button for clicking rather than surface contact like a drawing tablet.

    Yes, I agree. He uses it on the pad of paper at one point as well. I think you are correct about it being "height" from the "surface" rather than pressure. That would definitely take some getting used to.

    Drawing on thin air might take a whole heckuva lot of getting used to for me since I have a slight jitter in my wrist.
