The world of digital art is ever changing; it seems once you have a handle on technology, you’d best be prepared for some frequent changes. The tablet market is shaking things up in the realm of computers, and I dreamed that one day that Wacom would throw its hat into the ring with a stylus for the iPad – and that fantastic Wacom pressure sensitivity.
Let’s just say dreams do come true.
Wacom’s latest product is the new Intuos Creative Stylus, featuring 2048 pressure levels for a very unique drawing experience on the iPad. Now I know what you’re thinking, “sounds promising but what apps will support the device?” The Intuos was designed for the iPad 3, 4 and Mini and is compatible with SketchBook Pro, ArtRage, Bamboo Paper, Pro Create (woot) and Psykopaint.
James Cuda, co-founder of Savage Interactive and developer of ProCreate for iPad had this to say:
It’s great to finally see the trusted Wacom Intuos brand enter the creative mobile landscape. We’re very excited to announce that ProCreate supports the new Intuos Creative Stylus and we can’t wait to see what artists achieve with these two powerful mobile tools
The Stylus is powered by a AAAA battery, ensuring days of constant use. It also comes with a case that holds the stylus, spare battery and replacement nibs. And for the icing on the cake, it’s only $99.
The Creative Stylus will be available the beginning of October at your local Best Buy.
Be sure to check back in as I put this Stylus to the test. Already way to familiar with Art on the go with my Pogo Connect it should be interesting to see what Wacom brings, as this is their bread and butter when it comes to products. I just hope my Intous doesn’t get to jealous :)
