Wacom announces Bamboo Stylus

When it comes to pen tablets as well as interactive pen displays, then you can’t really go wrong with the name Wacom. After all, the company has been involved in both kinds of devices for the longest time already (some even say time immemorial), and they have just announced the Bamboo Stylus that is a culmination of their experience in the field, coupled with feedback from users as well as the wish list of the general populace.
The Wacom Bamboo Stylus is a spanking new input device that was specially developed to see action with the Apple iPad, delivering an intuitive and natural method to experience note-taking, sketching, drawing, and other forms of creative expression on the iPad. Wait a minute here, isn’t the iPad supposed to run perfectly fine using nothing else but your fingers? Guess this is where we find out more about Wacom’s Bamboo Stylus – in the extended post, of course.

The Bamboo Stylus has an authentic look and feel to it, where this is achieved thanks to subtle design elements, including a sophisticated black and silver design with satin-textured metal body and balanced weighting. At the tip of the stylus, one who is mathematically inclined would realize that it is 25% narrower (6mm vs. 8mm) in diameter compared to the rest of the popular solutions that are available on the market today.
When merged with ergonomic comfort and a firmer feel, the Bamboo Stylus is capable of delivering a premium digital inking experience for handwriting notes, highlighting text, editing documents, drawing and sketching among others. Despite touch being still the primary input method for the iPad, this stylus will definitely still have a place in the hearts of users, where it will enrich the way the iPad is used.
For instance, it will not only be more accurate but also delivers a precision that is unprecedented when you want to take notes in meetings and classroom settings, or perhaps even to sketch out rough ideas whenever you are on the move. The Wacom Bamboo Stylus is available for $29.99 a pop and is tipped for a mid-May release.
