Wacom’s First Pressure-Sensitive iPad Stylus

Yesterday Wacom unveiled their new portable drawing solutions with two new tablets, but not to be lost in the buzz they are also releasing their first pressure sensitive stylus for iPad. The Intuos Creative Stylus is the latest addition to Wacom’s Bamboo Stylus line and it’s first pressure-sensitive iPad stylus. As you probably know by now the iPad screen is not pressure sensitive so to get this effect Wacom has built this pressure sensitivity into the stylus. Using Bluetooth 4.0 the stylus will talk to compatible iPad art apps, which currently include SketchBook, ArtRage, ProCreate, ArtStudio, Inkist, Flipink and Wacom’s Bamboo Paper app. Wacom claims to offer 2048 levels of pressure-sensitivity and says that one AAA battery will power it for over 150 hours. The Intuos Creative Stylus will be on sale at $99 on October 7.
