Wacom Inkling captures your ink sketches as vector images

I do a bit of drawing now and then, and I like to convert my doodles into a digital format. Usually what I do is draw the original sketch on paper, then I scan it and re-work it with a Wacom tablet. I’ve often thought it would be cool to just draw my doodles straight onto paper, and have them magically uploaded to my computer, without needing to mess with a scanner. It appears that I will be able to do that very thing.

Wacom has announced the release of Inkling, a very special new pen. The pen writes just like any other, but when combined with the receiver, it can do much more. The receiver will capture every line made by the pen, and even let you break them up into new layers as you’re drawing. You’ll then be able to plug it into your computer and download the drawing into a variety of formats, including a vector image. You don’t even need special paper, as you can use whatever you happen to have lying around. $200 might be a lot to pay for a pen when it comes out next month, but as an artist, I’d say it might be worth it.
