Product Description

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.

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.

Pressure-Sensing Technology

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.

What's in the Box

Inkling digital pen, rechargeable pen battery, pen ink cartridge plus four spare cartridges, charging case, receiver (with rechargeable battery), USB cable, Inkling sketch manager application (located on the Inkling receiver), quick start guide, and electronic user manual.

Supported Paper Sizes Maximum paper size is A4 paper, 8.27" x 11.69" (210 x 297 mm). Inkling can be used on larger paper sizes but will only record a drawing area of this size. Inkling will not record strokes made within 0.8 inches (2cm) of the receiver.
Paper Type Inkling does not require any specialized paper. It is intended to be uses with standard paper or Sketchbooks on flat, rigid drawing surfaces.
Charging USB (powered port). Pen and receiver charge inside Inkling case.
Tracking Technology Inkling uses ultrasonic and infrared technologies. Infrared technology requires an unobstructed line of sight between the pen tip and the receiver when drawing.

Like others, I've been waiting for this product for months while at the same time wondering how accurate it would be. Mine arrived last night and I was almost afraid to try it because I didn't want to be disappointed--unfortunately, I am.

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.

I am writing this as a warning to consumers: do NOT buy the Wacom Inkling.
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.

The Wacom Inkling arrived today so I did some quick tests. Lots of good things to say in terms of the accuracy of the capture. The pen even works as a mouse on the screen when it's plugged in, just like a Wacom tablet (that was pretty cool).

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.

I had pre-ordered the Inkling way back when it was expected to be shipped mid-September. Admittedly, I succumbed to the hype and was super excited to finally get one in the first batch of Amazon available, Nov. 21st. Too bad that after about two weeks of trying to get this device to work as advertised I had to return it. So so sad. This would have been a GREAT device if Wacom would have released an Inkling that even approached its promised capabilities.

My experience in short: The Inkling is nowhere near accurate in recording a user's mark-making. I tested this particular shortcoming under many different conditions, going so far as to have others test the product with me in case the problems were the result of the way I was holding the pen. Nothing worked to make this any better, no matter who I tested this with or either of our styles of drawing. The unit seemed to be operating as it should (by the LED's showing connectivity between the pen and the receiver) but when viewing the resulting drawings the marks were nowhere near where they showed up on the actual paper, if they showed up in the digital file at all. Many times much of the mark-making was missing completely, even from the dead-center of the image, where the inkling in theory should be recording best.

I'm not even going to go into the clunky software or my experience of how it interfaces with Adobe products. I think other reviewers here have skewered Wacom on those points enough for anyone seriously considering purchasing Inkling to seriously think again.

Bottom line: bank that cash and wait for Wacom to mature the hardware/rework the software.
