Aimed at people who think visually, the new stylus provides a customizable and natural pen-on-screen experience. Designed by the digital stylus leaders, Wacom, this smart stylus changes with the user. Visual thinkers can personalize their Bamboo Sketch by choosing a soft or firm nib, and by customizing the buttons so favorite commands are at their fingertips.
“Visual thinkers who use an iPad or iPhone for their notes and sketches require a pen that offers precision and individualization,” said Mike Gay, Senior Vice President of the Wacom Consumer Business Unit. “Bamboo Sketch offers an advanced writing and drawing experience for those whose first instinct is to reach for a pen and paper as soon as inspiration strikes.”
The stylus boasts 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity when paired with select apps. A travel case carries the pen, replacement nibs, and USB charging unit. After being connected to the iPad or iPhone via Bluetooth, the battery life lasts up to 15 hours.
The Bamboo Sketch is already integrated with Bamboo Paper, ArtRage, Autodesk SketchBook, Concepts and MediaBang Paint.
