Digital Inkers take note. And developers of Digital Applications do so as well. Wacom is talking about its new tool, Project WILL (Wacom Ink Layer Language) which will essentially use Digital Ink as a language that can be shared across devices, applications, browsers, and essentially any screen that takes up the language.

The search for the perfect stylus to use with an iPad is a never ending one. I’ve tried many and quite a few work well and get the job done. But I’ve added a new one to the mix (actually two new ones) and they come from a company called Aponyo. Aponyou manufacturers styli, headphones […]

IMG_0069

Uh, oh. Methinks that I will be taking rehearsal notes in Digital Ink for my next show on the iPad after all. Inkers who have been hoping for some iPad app that makes Inking possible the way Tablet PC users are used to doing so have largely been disappointed so far. There have been some […]

As the announcement of the mythical Apple Tablet creeps closer, and as I’m cranking up an HP 2730p Tablet PC to go back into Ink note taking mode for the final week of rehearsals for The Buddy Holly Story at Wayside Theatre, I know there are quite a few Inkers out there who are a […]

Video of Inking on HP tm2

In a comment to a post on jkOnTheRun Shogmaster apparently got some hands on time with the HP tm2 and tried out some inking. The video is embedded below. As I watch it, though it looks like his hand is away from the screen, not resting on it, so we’re still looking for info on […]

Text Input on Tablets and Why This Needs Attention

James Kendrick has started a meme that should be an important one for Tablet manufacturers should be paying attention to.

Glad to see this starting to happen, although I’m sure we’ve got a ways to go. The BeBook2 e-reader was unveiled at the end of CeBIT this week, although things are still not nailed down yet. What’s potentially exciting about the BeBook2 from Endless Ideas is that it incorporates at least some Inking. Looks like […]

enote

I love Yanko Designs. I discover interesting concepts and thinking there all the time. We’ve seen any number of digital versions of the venerable Post-It-Notes concept for computers and the like, but this one looks kind of interesting, especially if you’re into the green thing. Note that they say don’t call  the E-Note  from Sequoia […]
