Wacom's Inkling revealed!

We've been wondering for the past week exactly what Wacom's new secret thing was going to be. Heated discussion in the office, there's been. In which we came to the conclusion that it'd be a special pen that you could draw with on paper, and it'd record your drawings and turn them into vectors so you could then work on them in Photoshop or Illustrator. And it'd have 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity.

Annoyingly, we didn't publish this speculation anywhere, because we didn't want to look like idiots if we got it wrong. Naturally we turned out to be right on the money. It's called the Inkling and it works pretty much as we surmised, except that there's a little receiver that comes with it, which clips to your sketchbook and, we imagine, records everything then plugs into your computer to copy your sketches across. You can even work with multiple layers; just press a button and you have a fresh layer to work with, which should be brilliantly helpful once you go to work in Photoshop or Illustrator (or SketchBook Pro, if you prefer).
