Wacom Inkling

PC Magazine
27 February 2013
  • Conclusion: The Wacom Inkling is a nifty idea and very enjoyable to work with, although it's best as a set-it-and-forget-it device for capturing rough sketches, rather than a precision tool for professional artists.
  • Pros: Novel design really works. Lots of fun to use. Slick, self-contained charging case. Compatible with PCs and Macs. Exports to a wide variety of formats. Very easy to use in practice.
  • Cons: Not quite accurate enough for very precise drawings. A bit expensive as a rough concepting tool. The included Sketch Manager software works but is overly obtuse.

Wacom Inkling

  • Excerpt: When I first saw the Wacom Inkling my reaction was “Wow!” I also thought it was too good to be true. Well, I am happy to report, after being sent a review unit by Wacom, that it is not too good to be true and the device is awesome! As an illustrator who has scanned sketches into my computer for years and redrawn those sketches in Illustrator the Inkling is exactly what I have been looking for.

  • Summary: If you're a creative professional that needs something to capture quick ideas on the go in a small and portable form factor then the Wacom Inkling is for you. At $200 though, it isn't a solution for a creative type that likes to sketch on paper.

Wacom Inkling makes pretty pictures, but software is sluggish

Macworld
28 November 2011
  • Excerpt: (1 items) To best understand what the Wacom Inkling is , we should start off with what it’s not. The Inkling won’t replace (or substitute for) a Bamboo , Intuos ( ), or Cintiq ( ) tablet. It’s not a tool for making final inks. And if you’d rather write than draw, the Livescribe ’s ( ) the pen you want. So what is the Inkling? It's a terrific sketch partner; a scanner replacement for first-draft doodles; and a surprisingly capable pressure-sensitive pen.

Expert Review

12 April 2012
  • Excerpt: After seeing impressive preview footage of the Wacom Inkling, we were very keen to get our hands on it. A tool that enables you to sketch directly to paper with a ballpoint pen, then upload the results to your PC for editing? Sweet. But there was a nagging doubt - the worry that the official demo might be too good to be true.

  • Pros: Use a real pen to draw with; upload in bitmap or vector format to supported programs

  • Excerpt: Сегодня ввиду повального стремления всех и каждого окружить себя электронными устройствами разных мастей, все новые и новые, самые, казалось бы, обыденные предметы стремятся стать компьютерными гаджетами, дабы упростить и убыстрить нелегкий человеческий труд. В данном случае речь пойдет о хитрой шариковой ручке, способной перенести с бумажного листа на компьютер все творческие изощрения и безумно важные идеи без использования сканера. Уже интересно? Тогда поподробнее.

Review: Wacom Inkling

gadgetgear.nl
23 February 2012
  • Summary: De Wacom Inkling is een geweldig idee dat zwak is uitgevoerd. Van een barstend scharnier tot koppelingen met Adobe software die niet werken en niet hersteld kunnen worden. Het tekenen gaat perfect en het opnemen van je tekeningen (rekening houdend met de opstarttijd van de sensor) gaat ook goed. De Inkling scoort ditmaal een matige voldoende. We hopen dat Wacom bij een opvolger de boel wel op orde heeft.
  • Pros: + Goede herkenning van pentekeningen, + Zeer complete uitrusting
  • Cons: - Zwakke scharnierconstructie, - Koppelingen met Adobe software functioneren niet goed

Wacom Inkling

CNET
24 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Qui de plus qualifié qu'un utilisateur quotidien de tablette graphique pour tester le nouveau concept de Wacom . C'est pourquoi nous avons confié le Inkling à notre Webdesigner William Marcantonio. ***** Le Inkling de Wacom , nous en avons déjà parlé, maintenant il est temps de voir ce que nous cache cette annonce prometteuse. Alors pour ceux qui n'ont pas suivi l'actualité sur CNET , Wacom vient de lancer un nouvel outil pour nos amis qui aiment dessiner.
  • Pros: sa mobilité et son autonomie, sa facilité d’utilisation, très compact, bon espace de stockage, ergonomie.
  • Cons: le manque de diversité au niveau du stylo (medium / encre noir), la retranscription vectorielle de l’esquisse, tout les mouvements ne sont pas toujours pris en compte, son prix.
