This looks amazing:
I actually thought of inventing a type of Ink that can be recognized by your computer without having to go through a scanner and editing textures of the paper and such, but never got around to it (I thought it wasn't that great of an idea). It was just a thought I had in the past.

I think my favorite part about it is the instant vector transfer, that will cut down a fair amount of production time

Guys and gals, before you get all starry-eyed, go read the specs.
It says clearly on their site: the precision of this thing's tracking is from +/-2.5 mm in the middle of a page, to +/- 5 mm near the edges. On an A4 page that's up to 4% wobble. Think of it. Your lines may be off by almost half an inch.
It may be that the deviation is consistent over the page and the relative position of the lines is more precise than might be inferred; but I am not going to buy one just to find out.
Also: what makes this so great for getting the sketches into computer, compared to a scanner?

Faster if you have tons of sketches from the day you want into the computer. I have a pretty fast scanner and I always dread when I have like 20 sketches I want to put into the computer. I just don't have the attention span for that.Also: what makes this so great for getting the sketches into computer, compared to a scanner?
But other than speed, the the thing that really has me geeking out is the insta-vector. If that works as the video shows, then that makes it worth the money 10 times over.
I often convert things to paths using "Convert to Paths" in photoshop, but depending on your line quality and the tolerance you set it at, it can cause a lot of detail loss (which is okay when I am doing comics, but other times I want more detail to remain), but that method is also several steps to achieve. To be able to have it right away when I open the document is amazing.
