The Original Tablet: Inkling by Wacom

They say it’s all about the tablet. That is, tablets are the future and every computer device will follow the tablet form. Well, here’s a device that returns users to one of mankind’s original tablets – the pen and pad of paper. For artists, it could be an iPad killer.

Sketch on any pad of paper and then import your illustration to your computer.

With Wacom’s device you can easily sketch on any piece of paper. You can create layers within your art and when you’re done, transfer your sketches to the computer – exporting your sketches in Photoshop and Illustrator.

How It Works
The Wacom Inkling attaches to your notebook or legal pad. Using a special stylus with a ballpoint pen-tip insert, the stylus sends a signal to the Inking receiver, which is attached in a fixed location on your pad of paper or notebook.


Using a traditional (but comfortable) pen-like stylus, artists could use a favorite notebook to capture their creations. 

For artists that want the fine control that only a pen can offer, the Inkling does a great job of capturing the artist’s essence. Wacom’s always made high-quality digital artists’ tools and is a leader in the category. The Inkling works great for artists learning how to use Photoshop.¬†Touch pads like the iPad and Galaxy Tab require the artist to touch the actual device display. If you’re an artist and prefer the traditional pen and paper method, then check out Wacom’s Inkling.
