Lenovo recently released one of the most interesting tablet hybrids in recent memory, just in time for the holidays. The Yoga Book has a digital keyboard that doubles as a sketch pad that even accommodates plain old paper, giving users several ways to draw images or jot notes. In fact, the tablet aspect of the machine is one of the most creative (and fun) concepts we’ve seen this year. The Yoga Book differs from traditional tablet first hybrid devices in several ways, but the most noticeable of these is the permanently attached keyboard, which is a departure from traditional 10-inch tablet...

Wacom has made a name for itself in the stylus and writing tablet world, and they're expanding efforts today with the launch of the Bamboo Stylus Duo. It's described as a ual-purpose stylus for the iPad and Android tablets that combines a proven capacitive pen tip for on-screen input at one end, and a premium ball-point ink pen at the opposite end for use on traditional paper. In related news, the company's Bamboo Paper app is now on Android. I's a free digital notebook app that allows users to create and share handwritten notes, doodles and sketches on their mobile devices. In combination with... Read more...
When people think of the Wacom brand, they generally think of sketch-pads of the digital variety. Larger, square drawing pads used by digital artists. But the company is taking a more mainstream approach with their latest product, Inkling. It's a new digital sketch pen that captures a digital likeness of your work while you sketch with its ballpoint tip on any sketchbook or standard piece of paper. Designed for rough concepting and creative brainstorming, Inkling bridges the gap between paper sketching and digital drawing by giving users at the front end of the creative process a way to rough-out...

Apple definitely doesn't sell a stylus for their iPad, but have you ever considered that you may actually get some use out of owning one made by a third-party? There have been quite a few capacitive stylii to ship over the past year, but definitely not an iPad specific model from a company as well-known in the industry as Wacom. That very company has just announced their new Bamboo Stylush, an intuitive new input device that allows sketching, drawing, and other forms of creative expression on the iPad. The tip of the stylus is 25 percent narrower (6mm vs. 8mm) in diameter than some of the other... Read more...
A Wacom tablet...for the Wii?! That's pretty much right, actually. Ever since Nintendo's Wii was launched, not too many wild and zany peripherals have come out that didn't incorporate the Wii remote in some way. For the most part, the Wii remote was as wild as it gets, so there's not a lot of extra room to innovate beyond that without using it in some way (i.e. a golf club attachment). But now, THQ has figured out a new way of incorporating the Wiimote that actually builds on the Wii's functionality. The uDraw GameTablet for Wii is now available in retailers across America, and it's definitely... Read more...
More tablets! Oh, wait. These aren't the tablets you're probably thinking of. Rather than introducing new Windows 7-based or Android-based tablets, Wacom has just announced a new round of tablets that are meant for creative professionals. Pros that use Photoshop more than e-mail. The Wacom STU family of signature tablets have been revealed, with these three aimed at companies that are moving toward paperless transactions and a digital workflow. The STU-520, STU-500 and STU-300 are all designed to capture electronic signatures, and none of these ever need batteries or a cord to carry an electronic... Read more...
