Illustrators of the world, rejoice! The good folk at Wacom – leaders in the graphics drawing tablet field for years – have introduced a new sketching pen, a pressure-sensitive ballpoint that allows conventional ink-on-paper sketching. The pen is wirelessly connected to a receiver clipped to the paper, communicating via ultrasonic and infrared links to relay the drawing data to the unit. Users can transfer their sketches, complete with layers, to a computer for further editing using their image software of choice. Doodling on restaurant napkins will never be the same again.
