Unofficial Wacom Fan Concept

I’m not a huge fan of cintiqs. Not that they’re a bad idea, but the excessive cabling, bulk, heat and glare make them unusable for me. That said, I’ve always thought that a solution would be cutting out those things.

Here’s a concept from Derick Schweppe, one of our fans, that addresses this very issue. It’s lightweight (I hope) tablet that runs Android OS with Wacom technology that would allow for full pressure sensitivity sketching without the bulk and the annoying cables.

Here’s a bit from Derek on the tablet concept -

The tablet can be used as an input for fully featured software such as photoshop. The wacom tablet incorporates a dual digitizer with both active pen and touch input. When sketching with the pen palm rejection is activated. The tablet utilizes a high quality IPS display.

One can only dream right?

    Been thinking about the need for a decent pressure-sensitive tablet ever since the whole tablet rage started. Would love to have something portable and potentially more affordable than a Cintiq. The closest I have gotten in the past to this functionality is an old Toshiba m200 tablet pc, but that is still bulky and can’t be used with my full power desktop.

    Seriously agree! How long does it take, I mean all the technology is out there.

    Bit bummed with Apple for not getting their act together, I think they just love creating a suspense vacuum, so they can whip the sales.

      Does it exist? I don’t believe it’s shipping. Besides that, it has one major flaw – it’s running Windows.

      • Jack

        yes, there are also videos of it on youtube, which are comparing it to a cintiq
        windows is no flaw dude, its possbile to run photoshop cs5 and autodesk sketchbook
