As this kind of product falls outside the day-to-day experience and expertise of the team at Gadgets 360, we worked with Mudit Ganguly, a freelance illustrator and graphic designer who uses such devices for a living, to provide his expert opinion about the Spark.Here's what he thought: Taking notes and jotting down ideas is something we all do.Im reading Vagabond, and Inoue place scketches between one chapter and another, and they are perfect for me, not for him XD.
Whether it's recording the details of a meeting, or roughing out an early concept, we end up using pages upon pages of paper which is then hidden away in a pile of notepads or sketchbooks.
Tablets and laptops are being used more and more as you will see in any meeting these days, yet you can't beat the fluidity of writing with a pen on paper.
The unit consists of a cigarette-lighter-sized receiver that clips onto the top of your paper and a ball-point pen “stylus” much larger than most pens.
The receiver tracks the stylus using infrared and ultrasonic sensors.
I would be glad to provide feedbacks on i for who's interested. May as well just keep saving for a Cintiq 21/22 UX/HD..turned out it was because i wasn't on a stable surface (i was drawing on a hardback but resting it on my knee) it works almost perfectly now, also i didn't realise that you can use it the same way as you use a graphics tablet on photoshop (use as mouse and paint brush etc) it works great, i drew this earlier today on it [link](my first ever tablet drawing)Im a defendor of the idea that a scketch is allways perfect.
While I prefer to work with my hands, I think my money would've been better placed saving for a Cintiq 21UX.
Wacom says that Inkling even lets users create layers in the digital file while sketching on paper, with the push of a button.
Works can be stored as JPEG, BMP, TIFF, PNG, SVG and PDF files for use with any kind of application that supports these formats.
The Bamboo Spark is a little different, as Wacom envisions it as a kind of smart notebook.
