Adobe’s drawing hardware due next year; hints at new touch apps

Design VP Michael Gough writes,

Adobe is moving our cloud pen, Project Mighty and our digital ruler, Project Napoleon, from a technology exploration to a planned product. We are teaming up with Adonit… to manufacture and ship Mighty and Napoleon in the first half of 2014.

 He also hints at forthcoming drawing apps:

Today we are unveiling two sneak peaks in this realm that we think really move the combined hardware and software experience forward: Project Parallel, a drafting iPad app designed and developed from scratch for the Project Napoleon hardware. The second, Project Contour, is essentially Kuler for shapes – take a photo of a favorite object or shape on an iPhone and access it with Napoleon on the iPad to simplify architectural line sketching, drawing and ideation.

In case you missed it the first time around, here’s a quick demo of Napoleon & Mighty:
