Muti-touch can be used to do things like manipulate a 3D model or pan, zoom and rotate an ...

Muti-touch functionality was added to Wacom's Intuos5 graphics tablets earlier this year and, after winning much praise from users, it's no surprise to see it arrive on the company's Cintiq range of interactive pen displays. The Cintiq range was first introduced in 2005 and the addition of the Cintiq 24HD touch now allows users to use their fingers to pan, zoom and rotate the canvas at the same time as using the pressure and tilt sensitive pen.  Read More

The Modbook Pro is set to bring Mac OS X Mountain Lion to tablets

The Modbook Pro is not your average tablet - powered by Mac OS X Mountain Lion, and controlled via a Wacom stylus, it is one of the most powerful tablet computers to launch this year. It starts life as an Apple MacBook Pro, which is then transplanted into a tablet casing, and given full stylus support. The end result is a high performance tablet featuring the flexibility and precision of stylus-based control.  Read More

Wacom's Inkling is a system that digitizes and stores pen-and-ink sketches, as they're bei...

Although E FUN may have just released its APEN, Wacom today introduced its very similar – yet different – Inkling digital sketch pen. Like the APEN, Inkling is a ballpoint pen that writes in ink on regular paper, and is combined with a small receiver that users clip to the top of the page. That receiver logs the location of the pen on the paper. When that data is transferred to a computer, a digital image of whatever was written or drawn is the result. Inkling is unique, however, in that it also incorporates pressure-sensing technology. This means that the relative line weights of the inked content will be transferred to the digital images, which makes it particularly well-suited to artwork.  Read More

Wacom's Intuos4 Wireless doesn't have any, well, wires

Wacom has set professional digital doodlers free with its updated Intuos4 professional pen tablet now featuring Bluetooth wireless technology.

The Wacom Intuos4 M

Although we’d all be lost without our trusty mice helping us navigate around our virtual desktop, there are some tasks that they just aren’t suited to. Anyone who has attempted to draw the simplest of pictures using the mouse knows that they are a poor substitute for the control that can be had from a traditional pen or pencil. That is why graphics tablets are such an essential tool of the trade for graphic artists, photographers and designers to name but a few. And probably the biggest name when it comes to graphics tablets is Wacom, so when they release an update to their popular Intuos line of pen tablets it’s worth taking a look see.  Read More

Wacom nextbeat

Wacom has taken an unlikely detour from the digital imaging market to create the nextbeat, a complete digital DJ package with a wireless control unit that can be removed from the base unit, and promises to liberate DJs from the booth - but we're not quite sure how that works when the headphones jack is located on the base unit.  Read More
