From the Manufacturer
Capture your ideas and rough concept sketches in digital format for further refining on your computer, emailing, or archiving. Inking is a highly portable sketching tool that allows you to sketch with a pressure sensitive ink pen on your favorite sketchbook or paper while at the same time capturing a digital version of your sketch. Inkling enables you to sketch away from your computer--at your favorite coffee shop, in brainstorming meetings, or on the train to work. When you finish sketching, you can plug the Inkling into your computer and transfer your sketches for further development on your computer.
While you sketch on paper, your ideas go digital. View larger.
Pen and receiver charge in case and connect to computer via USB. View larger.
Included: pen, receiver, USB cable, charging / storage case with spare pen ink cartridges.
Designed for Rough Concepting and Creative Brainstorming
Inkling is designed for those who sketch as part of the creative workflow or hobby. Because Inkling is compact and mobile, you can use it to capture your ideas whenever you have them and then transfer them to your computer for further refinement in popular creative software applications, emailing, or project archiving.
The ballpoint pen uses Wacom pressure-sensing technology to detect how hard the pen is being pressed onto the paper, and these variations appear in the digital version of your drawing. Refill your pen with any standard mini-ballpoint ink refill cartridge (1-millimeter ball size).
Portable and Easy to Use
The pen and receiver both store and recharge in a compact case, making it easy to transport the Inkling between home, office, meeting room, and any other workspace. 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. Store thousands of high-resolution sketches on the receiver before transferring them via USB to your Mac or PC.

In all fairness to Wacom, the Inkling does do what it is advertised to do. It is a "tool for capturing ideas and concepts for later refinement on your computer using Wacom Intuos pen tablets." I just didn't expect that the line art would need as much "refining" as it does.
I have drawn over 40 sketches with the Inkling and I've found that it works at an acceptable level of accuracy when I draw relatively close to the receiver (a couple inches below it). In fact, a few drawings have been remarkably accurate--but many have been way off, especially when I draw near the lower portions of a letter size sheet. If you watch the video you can see this.
The pen is wider than a normal pen or pencil. The lower grip area is almost identical to my Cintiq pen, but the weight and balance is different and it will take me a while to get used to it. Also, I normally sketch on paper with a pencil or sometimes a marker, so sketching with a ball-point pen is a big change for me.
The Sketch Manager software works well on my Windows 7 (64-bit) computer and I can easily export images to Photoshop and Illustrator. However, when I export layered images to SketchBook Pro things looked terrible--the layers don't line up. It is possible to use the Inkling Sketch Manager software to first save your image and then open it directly in SketchBook Pro rather than "exporting" it. However, when you use this approach all of the layers are flattened even if you save it as a tiff file. Inkling images without layers open fine in Sketchbook Pro.Read more ›
I received this product in the mail yesterday, and returned it today.
The verdict is simply heart breaking...
I had been extremely excited with the hype behind the inkling. The idea is genius. The execution is fundamentally flawed.
The product does not work. Wacom released a product that does not work.
What do I mean it does not work? The inkling DOES digitize your paper sketch, but does not do so accurately. It does so with gross and noticeable mis-alignments in your digitized drawings. This really renders the product absolutely useless. I thought that maybe I was bumping the paper or receiver so I placed weights upon the paper. I also made certain that the receiver was not obstructed in any way. I purposefully drew each line with care. It did not help.
I was so looking forward to the inkling and now I just feel let down.
I really hope Wacom tightens up their product and re-releases it. The Inkling really is an amazing idea.
A little less cool is the sketch manager software which was unusable on my main display in Windows 7. The menus began working when moving it to the secondary but then stopped working again until moving it to the main display. I hope they release some software updates for it.
One disappointing thing so far - When exporting directly to Photoshop, you can see slight jaggies from the recorded data in the sketch at 100%. It seems to sample your positional data as you draw, but the line is not completely smooth. I was hoping the need to redraw lines from a sketch would be alleviated by this product but so far that may not be the case. They use actions to import the point data into Photoshop. Maybe playing with the brush size settings will take care of some of it but this seems like something that could be fixed in software too.
In Illustrator, you can also see the loads of sampled positional points. Lines that need modification will need to be simplified before doing so. However, you get zero jaggies and this could be a good intermediate stage before bringing your illustration into Photoshop for crisp lines without jaggies.
That said, I'm very excited to see what is possible with this innovative device.

~Well designed case.
Everything you need for use is stored in an economical 2.5x6.75x.75 (ish) inch box that closes magnetically. There are refill inks, a mini usb-usb cable, the receiver, and the pen fits neatly into the center of the hinges. The only bit of this that makes me nervous is the fact that in order to plug in the receiver, the user places it slightly to the left, and slides it onto a mini USB dock. This dock seems like it could be potentially fragile. There are two pages in the Quick Start Guide that demonstrate proper technique for removing and replacing the receiver, and my worries have gone down with practice.
Along with the well designed case, it is worth mentioning that the case is the perfect size for my backpack or a large pocket. It slides in the small gap next to my books and when I went on a little field trip this weekend, I was able to capture all my sketches digitally. When I came home I could just plug the receiver in start using my sketches, rather than spending the first hour at home scanning everything in.Read more ›
