Wacom introduces Bamboo Splash tablet
Now, when we talk about tablets in the form of the Wacom Bamboo Splash, we are not referring to the Android-powered variety – although Microsoft’s recent announcement of their Surface tablet is definitely worth checking out. The Wacom Splash Tablet is the latest family member of the Bamboo range of pen tablets which will be able to open up new avenues for creative and artistic people who want to make the jump into the world of digital art without being bogged down by any boundaries.
Basically, the Wacom Bamboo Splash will be able to offer digital artwork exploration in a fun and affordable manner. It does not matter if you are an aspiring artist at home, school, work or play, the $79 Bamboo Splash will sport a modern day tablet design, while carrying Wacom’s world-renowned pressure-sensitive pen in order to deliver an exuberant drawing experience. How can you not do so when Wacom generously throws in a suite of value added software so that you can discover new ways to draw, sketch and paint – right on the computer itself?
It is said that the Wacom Bamboo Splash makes creative input on the computer a snap – thanks to Bamboo’s pressure-sensitive, battery-free and cordless pen working at the heart and soul of the entire brand experience. Capable of delivering incredible comfort and freedom of movement for hours of stress-free input, it does not matter whether you use the pen for navigating purposes, to paint a landscape or to draw a portrait. The pen itself has a natural-feeling pressure that offers users a direct link to precise input control, in addition to a realistic pen-on-paper feel.
Not only that, the included pen will play nice with creative software applications in order to deliver instinctive pen and brush strokes, resulting in finished artwork that comes near the spectacular.
Rick Peterson, Director of Consumer Products for Wacom Technology Services, Corp., says, “Users will find that the creative software bundle, consisting of ArtRage Studio and Sketchbook Express from Autodesk, blends wonderfully with the Bamboo Splash pen for a simple and powerful way to communicate and express themselves artistically. Never before has an entry-level pen tablet from Wacom come with such a full-featured suite of software.”
The Wacom Bamboo Splash will be compatible with both Mac and PC platforms, and will also be able to support Microsoft’s next generation operating system, Windows 8.
