    Since Arshes Nei directed me here, I thought I'd throw this into the mix. I thought it was especially cool that the pen led lights up the color you selected. I'm also super hyped about hand cancelling when the device is activated.

    The ipad is a toy. Unless true pressure sensitivity is implemented into the design, using tricks such as velocity and proximity input is an insult to your intelligence. I'd take a WinSlate/Tab and Hackintosh it before I'd ever even consider wasting my time on some overgrown beard, holes in jeans, wool beanie wearin in July, raggley skater shoe wearin, more employees than customers in the Mac store hangin', cultist Apple fanboy iPad. Stop before you wake up later and realize you wasted precious creative time trying to make a digital tempera fingerpaint Diablo III scene. Not gonna happen.
    Let the flames beginnnnnnn *WHOOSH* LMAO pld:

    W00t! I've been looking forward to this. I must admit, I'm a little interested in the inner mechanics of this thing. Is the tip pressure sensitive?

    Yup, and some of us, who're getting it purely for the ipad exclusive games, kinda wanna draw on it to the extant possible.

    The iPad is its own niche. I would never recommend to anyone at this point to get one purely for art. But lets face it, some of us like you mentioned above, use it for work or pleasure and if it can pull double duty as a sketch pad, great. Its not up to snuff yet but if the next generation of styluses are both pressure sensitive and more precise, it could just turn into something that an artist would want to have in their bookbag.

    The iPad IS a great bookreader though. I've stated before. All those books you don't need to carry around when you want to look up anatomy reference. Or there's a chapter in a book that you want to read on the go or warm up to certain painting exercises. The iPad can pretty much carry multiple books instead of excess baggage to carry around.

    This is still all theoryware so until it comes out...I'm not that excited anymore.

    ipad is the perfect tool of sketching for artists like us. I have an ipad and I use several sketch apps. It is fun to take it out for sketch, almost close to Photoshop but remotely. But there is one thing I hate about Ipad. Their color is not the same as your pc/mac so to correct it, you must calibrate it (really annyoing) if you want to work further more in PS. But other in mind it is a really good digital sketchbook, I highly recommend it for someone who is not scared of sensitivity, I dont use sensure pressure on my wacom either, which is giving me more confident working in professional.

    So does Jot Touch pressure sensitivity control the size of the brush or the opacity and can it be toggled like in Photoshop for example? Because we need both.

    edit: based on the screenshot from Procreate it looks like you can use both from their dynamics menu:

    Ipad + pressure sensitivity coming soon

    Only for iPad 2 and 3?

    http://amzn.com/B007Z0A7AG

    Looks like the JaJa one is also available for order at 89.99 which can be used with Android tablets (if they have a microphone) - they'll be shipping now

    Friend showed me this review. http://www.macworld.com/article/1167...e_promise.html

    Apparently the Jot only has 256 levels. The JaJa claims 1024.

    Sort of a bummer:

    Procreate uses pressure sensitivity only for opacity, omitting brush size—there’s no option to swap between or turn on both. And those opacity levels can be finicky, even with user brush customization—light and dark ranges are perfect, but trying to consistently use mid-range pressure proved very difficult for the app to parse.
    The company claims that apps can work with up to 256 levels of pressure sensitivity, though I found that most of the Jot Ready apps had far fewer noticeable levels. In a comment on Adonit’s Facebook page, the company admitted that many of its partner apps are “dumbing down the levels” to avoid the Bluetooth connection requiring “more processing power with no advantage.”
    This shows in the original video in OP, where it goes from light to dark with very little in between.

    Yeah it is. I'm still interested in the JaJa I am about to purchase it but wanted to see if there's a review first. It still maintains the 1024 levels, doesn't use bluetooth - so you can doodle on a plane. You can even use it on Android if it has a mic.

    It actually cost less than the Joint with shipping combined...

    Just bumping to let you know I did actually order the JaJa they've billed my card so I'll see when it arrives so I can give a review.

    Hooray for upcoming birthdays and extra monies
