Nomad Brush for the iPad

Under - Art, Illustration, Industrial Design, Technology

This appears to be something that I had been waiting for but the video and the website do not provide enough information to address all your questions. It sure is a unique artist paintbrush stylus for the iPad made with a long handle and soft bristles, but is it pressure sensitive? Is it going to work with all those paint and sketch apps out there or would come with it’s own?

The information is very sketchy and I see a slight lag in response (may be just me!) in that three seconds demo shown in the video above. Available February 2011 so meanwhile enjoy this and yes, I hope Wacom is going to wake up soon.

    Do you really think Wacom will “wake up”, considering their abstract mark looks like the Phillies mascot with the horn nose? Their death knell was the mark’s debut!

    The day the iPad gets a pressure sensitive stylus is the day Wacom goes out of business.

    @Kimball Clark: honestly speaking I never noticed that Phillies-mascot-horn-nose-like mark that Wacom uses despite the fact that I see it almost every day as it is right in front of me on my desk! What would you call it … brand blindness or something else?

    Now since you have made me actually “look” at it, I completely understand that why the life is so painful!

    @Januz: pressure sensitivity would come to iPad one day like all the other missing features. For Wacom, this might not be a big market for now but it would be hard to imagine that they wouldn’t do anything at all as this medium has a true potential for their products.

    looks like a promo for something available April 1 to me… or am I just being cynical?! Nice if it works though…

    … and here it comes. Bamboo Stylus from Wacom! Think it would be perfect for ArtRage.
