The pen and receiver come with a very clever carry case that doubles as a charging station for both units.
The case isn’t much larger or heavier than a schoolchild’s pencil box and also has room for a short mini-USB cable and four spare refills.
You’ll also have to be careful how you hold the pen and paper.
Direct line of sight is needed between the pen and receiver, so fingers, rulers and other stationery can’t get in the way. Usability You can only use the included ball-point pen, which probably isn’t any artist’s first choice of implement.
The pen is thicker than most regular pens but has a matte rubber coating for grip.
It’s quite top-heavy and you can’t hold it too close to the base, which makes it slightly awkward, but not impossible to get used to.
You can watch animations of your drawing process, layer by layer.
It’s fascinating and potentially a useful tool, but you can’t export these animations for later use.
Layers are preserved perfectly, but the Inkling’s other shortcomings are instantly apparent. That’s especially true if you go over the same lines often—you’ll see multiple, slightly offset lines.Wacom’s Inkling is a whole new type of gadget—a drawing tablet minus the tablet.Its purpose is to let you write or sketch on plain paper with an ordinary pen, and still get perfect digital copies of your work.You can throw it in any bag and use the Inkling with any pad, notebook or loose sheet of paper.The receiver’s clip covers a microswitch that creates a new document every time you attach it to anything.
