Wacom, a Japanese tablet company unveiled two products at the Consumer Electric Show 2017 today, which is a step closer to bridge the gap between the traditional and digital graphic designing tools. These new tools are sure to change how all the creatives approach and record their ideas.
First up is the small Bamboo Folio which is an addition to Wacom’s Bamboo family of smartpads. Perfect for the on-the-go note takers, this A5 smartpad allows the users to turn their sketches or handwritten notes in to digital masterpieces with a simple click of a button. Featuring the same Bamboo Slate and Folio devices technology, it is also integrated with the Wacom Inkspace app and cloud services so that users are able to easily access the files anywhere.
“Our Bamboo smartpads are made to naturally fit into any workflow, fusing the ease of writing naturally on pen and paper with digital technology to transform thoughts to ideas,” said Mike Gay, senior vice president for Wacom’s Consumer Business Unit.
“The small Bamboo Folio provides an on-the-go solution for those that are looking to organise and protect their valuable ideas as they bring them from paper to the cloud – whether that’s at home, at school or at work.”
Apart from that, Wacom Intuos Pro, the Intuos Pro Paper Edition, and the Pro Pen 2 were also unveiled and the best part? It eliminates the hassle of scanning the physical artwork.
The Intuous Pro works like a piece of paper and is connected to Photoshop; it creates a digital ink version of the sketches at the touch of a button. Whereas Ink-on-paper drawings are captured and stored digitally on the Intuos Pro Paper and can be modified at a later time with any compatible vector or layered software app while the new Pro Pen 2 takes the creative experience to a new level with enhanced pressure sensitivity and precision.
Masahiko Yamada, President and Chief Executive Officer of Wacom said, “We know it’s challenging to bring ideas to life when the tools lack the ability to easily unlock the potential of creative minds, That is what the new Intuos Pro does. It offers a way to start the creative process by adapting to any workflow so users feel empowered as they dare to build a more creative world.”
The Intuos Pro is Bluetooth enabled and is compatible with both Macs and Pc’s and come in medium and large models. The Intuos Pro comes with the Wacom Pro Pen 2, pen stand and features eight ExpressKey, multi-touch gesture control and TouchRing.
