Wacom has introduced the Intuos Creative Stylus, a pressure-sensitive digital pen for sketching, drawing and painting on an iPad. It provides a “realistic pen-on-paper feel and an intelligent design so you can rest your palm naturally on the iPad when using compatible creative apps,” according to the folks at Wacom.
The Intuos Creative Stylus boasts pressure sensitivity of 2048 pressure levels. This means that it can reproduce the feel and artistic control of traditional brushes and markers, which makes it suitable for sketching, illustrating and image editing. It’s also highly responsive, even reacting to light strokes, while rejecting unintentional touches when used with compatible apps. It connects with iPads via Bluetooth 4.0 (it’s designed for the iPad 3, 4 and mini and apps such as Autodesk SketchBook Pro for iPad, ArtRage (by Ambient Design), Bamboo Paper, ProCreate (by Savage Interactive) and Psykopaint.
The Intuos Creative Stylus is designed with a brushed aluminum housing in two color versions: black and blue/black. It will be available for US$99 at the beginning of October at Best Buy. For more info go to www.wacom.com .
