    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?

    Yeah. I was wondering about that too.

    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.

    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.

    I don't normally scan sketches unless it's like a pen and ink drawing that I'm going to compile into a finished artwork. This is looks great though, and would definitely encourage me to upload more sketches. It's true, though, that it's not much more difficult to scan an image, clean up the sketch a little, and then convert it to a vector in illustrator.

    What I'd really like to see for this are different kinds of pens. This is a ballpoint pen, it'd be great to see a technical pen, or different nib-types of pens, maybe even a brush?

    Yeah, the vector thing would be really sweet if it works like the video (and the accuracy isn't TOO far off). You could do the rough in pencil, then come back over it with the inkling.

    It's still a bit rich for my blood, though (and, ohhhhhh, what I wouldn't give for a Cintiq instead. Well, I wouldn't give £800 for it, but you know what I mean).
    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).
