All you designers and sketch artists out there, here’s something for you – Inkling – a digital sketch pen with a ballpoint tip that makes a digital capture of your artwork. This revolutionary pen is produced by Wacom, a Japan-based company which has been producing pen tablets, digital interface solutions, interactive pens and other interface technologies for over twenty years.

Wacom Inkling is just one of those innovative solutions in a form of a pressure-senstive pen which records and transfers your sketches to applications like Adobe Creative Suite 6, Illustrator, Photoshop, and Autodesk SketchBook Pro 6. How does the Inkling work? As you draw, your strokes are electronically recorded as raster or vector artwork into the application of your choice where you can continue editing your artwork.

Once imported, each layer of your sketch can be saved with just a button click. What this means is that Inkling can save individual layers so that you can make adjustments to them later, if required.

You will need a USB port to transfer your sketches to your computer because, before importing, your work is stored in a receiver (included in the Inkling package). Inkling allows you to save your drawings in the following formats: BMP, TIFF, PNG, JPG, PDF and SVG.
