My father once told me that it is not a good idea to purchase a car in its first model year. Granted I am talking about something substantially cheaper but I just might apply that advice here.
I’d been waiting for the Wacom Inkling to hit the shelves and already seen myself sitting in Bryant Park sketching the carousel. The product faded from my consciousness after numerous failed attempts for find them for sale after the scheduled release date. The concept . . . sketch on regular paper with a special ink filled pen and receiver, and the images are saved as vector based images to be uploaded to a computer.
The video demo by Wacom (the manufacturer) makes it look irresistible, but so far on Amazon.com there are 32 customer reviews with an average of 3 stars. A video demo by V. Hutson sealed the deal, or maybe that should be, sealed the no deal and has convinced me to wait for the next iteration. If there weren’t so many other electronic “toys” out there I might be more tempted to purchase the device which lists for $199. But I think I will wait for the model to be released.
