To test the Wacom Inkling, we asked PopSci's Art Director, Todd Detwiler, to doodle to his heart's content. These are his thoughts.
The promise of the Wacom Inkling is simple: sketch anywhere and transfer your work to a digital platform with quickness and ease. And it delivers on that promise. I really liked the eloquent design of the Inkling, and was able to figure out the mechanics of the device quickly. That's not to say it's perfect, however.
MIT chemists cover the whiteboards and even windows of their with graphical diagrams of molecular bonds, but they need not rely upon dry-erase markers much longer. Their computer science colleagues have begun developing sketch-recognition for tablet computers such as Apple's iPad that can interpret stylus drawings of chemical bonds and element symbols for chemists, circuit components such as batteries or capacitors in an electrical engineering diagram, and even family trees.
