Wacom Inkling Smart Pen

Wacom Inkling Smart Pen

This is a definite “must have” for all graphic designers, animators, and artists alike.

The Wacom Inkling Smart Pen is a 2 part device that transmits your handwriting strokes into a digital format.

The technology works like the Wacom Bamboo except there is no tablet and you draw using real ink on actual paper.

In other words, you can focus on drawing naturally versus having to look at a computer screen.

Just sketch your ideas on standard paper or sketchbooks while capturing the digital likeness of your drawings.

And it’s also extremely energy efficient.

The unit uses two embedded microphones that give it an audio type “stereoscopic vision” that allows it to hear where the pen is moving and register that information as digital movement.

The pen gives off completely inaudible pulses that help the base unit track its location and ballpoint pressure.

The receiver can be clipped to the edge of any standard paper or sketchbook, and the position can be adjusted for left or right handed users to provide the receiver with an uninterrupted line of sight with the pen tip.

When sketching is complete, the receiver is connected to your computer through USB, to transfer the digital files of your sketches.

Files are then opened with the included Inkling Sketch Manager software, which manages layers or changes file formats before transferring the sketches into other creative software applications for further editing or refinements.

Inkling can store thousands of sketches and can export layered files from the Sketch Manager software directly to Adobe Photoshop, and Illustrator, as well as Autodesk Sketchbook Pro.

The pen and receiver both store and recharge in a compact case making it easy to transport the Inkling between home, office, meeting room or any typical workspace.

An internal battery in the base is recharged through a USB connection and the pen only needs inexpensive watch batteries that last a long, long time.

The Wacom Inkling was released in limited quantities at the end of 2011 for a suggested retail price of $199. Wacom plans to release more either the summer of 2012 or early fall.



  • Sketch your ideas on standard paper or sketchbooks while capturing a digital likeness.
  • Add layers to your sketches by pressing the layers button on the receiver while you sketch.
  • The ballpoint pen uses Wacom’s pressure sensing technology to detect how hard the pen is being pressed to the paper while sketching. These pen pressure variations will appear in the digital version of your drawing.
  • Store thousands of high resolution sketches on the receiver before transferring them via USB to your PC or Mac.
  • Files can be opened with the included Inkling Sketch Manager software to edit, delete or add layers as well as to change formats and transfer the files for adjustment and editing in creative software applications.
  • Export your sketches with layers directly from the Inkling sketch manager into Adobe® Photoshop®, Illustrator® (CS3+), Autodesk® SketchBook® Pro (2011+) or Autodesk® SketchBook® Designer.
  • Save your sketches from the Inkling Sketch Manager in the following formats: JPG, BMP, TIFF, PNG, SVG and PDF.
  • Pen and receiver recharge and travel inside the compact Inkling case.
