Wacom’s Pressure-Sensitive Intuos Creative Stylus Arrives For The iPad In October
There's quite a few capacitive stylus options on the market for iPad (3, 4 and Mini) users, but Wacom will leverage the pressure-sensitivity of its Intuos brand starting this October with the release of the $99 Intuos Creative Stylus at Wacom's eStore and Best Buy stores. Wacom says it'll sport 2048 levels of pressure by way of Bluetooth 4.0 and the pen's tip, which like most capacitive stylus pens is covered by swappable silicon nibs. So far, the new stylus is confirmed to be optimized for use in Wacom's own free Bamboo app, along with the iOS versions of SketchBook Pro, ArtRage, ProCreate and Psykopaint.
The Intuos Creative Stylus comes in black and blue colorways, with the pen itself built of an aluminium housing. The pen's electronics are powered by a single AAAA battery, which Wacom says ensures "days" of frequent use. An extra battery, along with two replacement nibs (if they're anything like Wacom's Bamboo stylus, you'll need them after rubbing rubber on the iPad screen for a long time) can be stored along with the stylus itself in an included case.
