Digitally sketch on paper

Wacom is introducing a new pen (the “Inkling”) that digitally records what you draw.  1000 levels of pressure over an A4 sized area.  You just clip a small receiver to the top of the page and draw with the ink pen onto your paper.  No special paper is required.  The pen takes standard refill cartridges, and lasts 8 hours on a charge.  Images can be saved in JPG, BMP, TIFF, PNG, SVG and PDF.  The latter two formats should allow you to manipulate your drawing on your computer.

Pricing is expected to be RRP US$199.99 on release.  Australian release not known.
