Inkling. The designer's tool on the go.

Do you start your artwork with pen and paper? But at the same time regret that your work is stuck on paper until you have scanned the image? Then Inkling is an indispensable tool for you. This digital sketch pen allows you to sketch with a real ballpoint pen on any paper. While you are drawing, all strokes are recorded electronically which can then be imported as raster or vector artwork in to your preferred graphics application for further editing. With just one button click you can record layers, for instance, to separate preparatory and final drawings. These layers are then retained after import.

In a nutshell, Inkling enables you to start off your artwork the traditional way, while making the first step of your digital workflow simultaneously, wherever you are.

I received this off Play around Christmas (unfortunately for my wallet). Maybe the excitement got to my head but after a few experiments with the Inkling it wasn't as good as I imagined.

The whole design and way it's packaged is flawless. The software is easy to install and use, along with changing nibs and packing it back up. It feels secure and well built.

It's let down by the accuracy. As a graphic designer I thought this would be a great substitute to scanning in masses of paper but when drawing detailed sketches and going back over areas it was unable to cope. For simple idea generation and doodles the Inkling would be OK, for anything detailed, stick to old fashioned ink.

The pen also feels very bulky and has to be held at a certain position which can be off putting.
