Object of Desire: Adobe Ink & Slide

September 11, 2014

For visual artists, nothing beats putting pen to paper, but in the digital world these analogue tools might seem out of date. Not to the folks at Adobe, who have created the Ink & Slide, a digital pen and ruler designed to make sketching and drawing on the iPad a more natural and fluid experience. Adobe Ink is a fine-tipped, pressure-sensitive, three-sided aluminum stylus that employs Adonit Pixelpoint technology to give artists control and precision when creating images on the iPad. Adobe Slide is a digital ruler that lets you draw a variety of shapes on the iPad, including straight lines, perfect circles, snazzy French curves, or whatever your artistic heart desires. The Ink & Slide connects wirelessly to the iPad via Bluetooth, and integrates with the Creative Cloud to give you access to your creative assets in the Cloud Clipboard, along with all the Kuler color themes. You’ll almost think that you’re back in composition class in art school.
