Wacom has just announced a new pressure-sensitive stylus for drawing, painting, and sketching on an iPad. It's called the Intuos Creative Stylus. Compatible with the third-generation iPad, fourth-generation iPad, and iPad mini, it boasts 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity powered by its Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity:
Providing the power to produce professional results on an iPad, the Intuos Creative Stylus's advanced technology comes in form of a best-in-class pen experience and pressure sensitivity of 2048 pressure levels. This means that it can reproduce the feel and artistic control of traditional brushes and markers, so it's ideal for sketching, illustrating and image editing. It is also highly responsive, even reacting to light strokes, while rejecting unintentional touches when used with compatible creative apps that integrate Wacom's industry-leading technology. Bluetooth 4.0 Smart technology ensures seamless connection to the latest iPad devices.The Intuos Creative Stylus also features shortcut buttons for carrying out commonly used functions, such as undo and redo. In addition, it runs on a AAAA battery that allows for days of constant use. Available in black or blue/black variants, the Intuos Creative Stylus will be sold for $99 at Best Buy at the beginning of October. A number of popular drawing, sketching, and painting apps for iPad have already been updated to add support for the Intuos Creative Stylus. These include ArtRage, ProCreate, SketchBook Pro for iPad, and, of course, Wacom's very own Bamboo Paper app. Originally designed for Wacom's Bamboo stylus, Bamboo Paper has indeed been updated with support for Wacom's new pressure-sensitive stylus. In addition, it has been updated with new tools, new color palettes, new export options, premium notebooks, and enhanced palm rejection.
