I’m on vacation and writing from the beach on my iPad but in read about this and just had to post about it! Ten One design, makers of the pogo sketch stylus many people use to sketch on their ipads, has just come up with a way to enable ores sure sensitivity on the iPad. It uses the amount of contact of the soft tip of the sketch pen as an indicator of the amount of pressure being applied.
It may be somewhat if a long shot having it implemented and working on the iPad since it does seem to use private API’s or programming snippets. Apple has policies in place that disallow the use of such APIs so I’d be a little surprised if they do allow this schema into the app store any time soon. But if they do, could this really be the death of the smaller cintiq and intuos? Time will tell, but i’m sold!
