    Latest From Mobile Phone Wolrd -  Wacom Inkling Brings Ctrl-Z to Paper DrawingsInkling turns your scribblings into bitmap and vector files


    Inkling is Wacom’s latest digital drawing tool and, frankly, it looks amazing. Inkling consists of a special ink pen and a detector device which digitizes anything you draw on paper and lets you send it to your computer. This is nothing new — just yesterday I wrote about a the Apen for Android devices. But there’s a reason Wacom is at the top of the pen tablet market: it does these things better than anyone else. Take a look:



    Assuming that the Inkling works as well as it seems to do in the video, there are a few things that stand out here. First is that the pen is pressure sensitive (with 1024 levels), so the lines that end up on your computer should have the same weight as those you make on the paper. Second is layers. Tap a button to start a new layer. On paper. That’s pretty amazing right there.

    Finally, you can import your drawing into Adobe Illustrator as a vector file. Frikkin’ vectors! This means that you can bend and tweak the individual strokes of your ink drawing as much as you like. It also means that you could scale up a tiny doodle and print it onto a billboard with no loss in quality.

    Once done, the resulting files can be opened in Photoshop, Illustrator, Autodesk Sketchbook or Sketchbook Designer on the Mac or PC. And even the case design is clever: The pen sits inside the oversized hinge, and the case itself is the charger (three hours of charging gives eight hours of use).

    It’s not often I go out and buy something I write about here on Gadget Lab, but I’m ordering one of these as soon as they start to ship in September. Sure, it costs $200, but it’s my birthday soon.
