Wacom Inkling Turns Drawings into Digital Images

Wacom unveiled its new Inkling product on Tuesday. Inkling is a pen that captures what users are drawing without requiring special paper.

The pen and sensor combo tracks user’s movements as they draw, registers pressure changes against the paper, and converts the data into digital images. The images can be imported into applications like Adobe Photoshop for editing, and the pen includes Wacom’s own Sketch Manager application for editing images, too.

Images can be exported from Inkling as Photoshop, Illustrator, Autodesk Sketchbook, JPG, BMP, Tiff, PNG, SVG and PDF documents.

Wacom’s Inkling will be available in September and is priced at US$199.
