Wacom unveils pressure-sensitive Intuos Creative Stylus for iPad
Wacom has unveiled the Intuos Creative Stylus for iPad. The stylus is a pressure sensitive device with 2,048 levels of sensitivity that Wacom says is as close to the experience of pen on paper as anyone has gotten on the iPad yet. A nice feature about the stylus is that, since it uses Bluetooth 4.0, Wacom could build in "palm rejection." That means that touch input with a large surface area won't register when you are using the stylus, so you can hold the iPad comfortably without messing up your drawings.
The Intuos Creative Stylus works with the iPad 3, fourth-generation iPad and the iPad mini. It's built to work with Wacom's Bamboo Paper app, but plenty of third-party apps also support the stylus, including SketchBook Pro, ArtRage (by Ambient Design), ProCreate and Psykopaint. The Intuos Creative Stylus goes on sale in October for US$99.
