There’s a bit of a debate between digital and traditional artists about which is the better medium. Digital artists love the versatility that graphic programs offer (read: cmd-z cheaters), while traditional artists prefer the tactile sensation of drawing on paper (read: afraid of technology). But the argument is moot because Wacom has bridged the gap between digital and traditional art with their latest toy. The Wacom Inkling is an ink pen that works on real paper, but it converts anything you draw into digital artwork. Unlike digital pens meant for note taking, the Inkling captures your pen strokes exactly as you draw them thanks to 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity. Now artists can draw the old fashioned way and then upload their work into their favorite graphics program to make changes or additions.
