Pretty nifty. I would never use it. But I can see how it would be way easier to draw on than a computer pad.

Thank you Russ. I just might give one to my wife for Christmas.

Wow. This could be fun. Might be a game changer for the sketch vector stock marketplace.

Awesome product. But is this invention evidence that government regulations aren’t oppressive to new development after all; or is it a testament to human tenacity that, despite bureaucratic obstacles, innovations will occasionally surface?

How much did the government fund the research into this? After all, according to Joe Biden, no technological advances are made without substantial funds and direction from the government.

I bought a similar device several months ago because I thought it would come in useful for making digital images of my signature for electronic ducuments, and for keeping an archive of the many paper forms I fill out. I got it to replace the Wacom tablet that I bought a couple years earlier.

I’ve never used either device. But they are pretty cool.

Holy where’s my credit card, Batman. That’s bought.

How much does it cost?

Awesome! Will it make me draw any better?

Wouldn’t it have been cool if da Vinci had access to tools like this?

That’s… amazing. I LOVE technology! One of the biggest problems for an artist looking to create a sketch on paper for transfer into photoshop is that you have to sketch, scan, and then finally digitally ink. This would greatly simplify that process by completely eliminating the scanning stage and ensuring that your sketch was digital in the first place.

Agreed. I recently made sketches for a client, then scanned them and traced them in a vector program. According to the video, this thing goes to the vector stage right away. That’s a huge help.

OK, now let’s see the one created by the government task force!
