Check out the new Wacom Inkling
“Wouldn’t it be great if your ideas could start as sketches with a ‘real’ pen on paper & immediately become electronic vector graphics?” Er–yes, please:
So, why not just sketch with regular pen & paper, then snap a photo of the results? A few things come to mind:
- Layer creation while drawing
- Fidelity (vs. a photo) and pressure sensitivity
- Sequence: “As Inkling records your drawing,” the site says, “you can play it back to see how your drawing was made, stroke-by-stroke. You can use the ‘scrubber’ feature to isolate parts of your drawing to separate into individual layers.”
I haven’t tried the device, but it looks exciting. Props to Wacom for thinking in some interesting new ways.
(rt) Scientific photography: Escher in water, eggs exploding, & more
- Moments in time:
- Love it: an Escher painting refracted in a drop of falling water.
- Check out some rather amazing food photography (PDF)–e.g. high-speed egg detonation. [Via Margot]
- Images like this make me suspect that God has a soft spot for airbrushed “Noble Wolf” shirts.
