CES 2017: Wacom’s Intuos Pro Paper Edition literally lets you draw on paper

Just announced at CES 2017 is Wacom’s latest Intuos Pro Paper Edition which lets you incorporate paper into your creative workflow.

Wacom has been offering solutions to designers, artists and photographers that allow them to easily take their sketches and drawings to the computer for years. This year, the company has gone from developing different nibs for their styluses to literally allowing you to sketch on paper.

 With the Intuos Pro Paper Edition, you simply clip your favorite drawing paper to the surface and sketch using either their Fintetip Pen or optional Ballpoint Pen(both additional purchases). The marks you make on paper will be instantly captured as an editable file you can open later.

The Finetip pen actually lets you draw with ink.

The best part? You won’t even need to be connected to the internet or a computer. The Intuos Pro Paper Edition has enough internal storage space to capture up to 200 pages with unlimited layers. Take the tablet out for the day and transfer it all to your computer to edit further when you get home.

When connected, the Intuos Pro Paper Edition works just like any Intuos Pro – with customizable ExpressKeys and a Touch Ring for easy shortcuts to your most commonly used tasks. Meanwhile, the included Pro Pen 2 is also much improved from the previous version, with 8,192 levels of pressure and side switches to for easy access to short cuts.

The included Pro Pen 2 Wacom's most sensitive stylus yet.

"Wacom is dedicated to helping artists harness inspiration and capture ideas," added Masahiko Yamada. "With the Intuos Pro and Intuos Pro Paper Edition, creative professionals will be able to evolve their ideas easily from inspiration, to expression, to impact."

The Wacom Intuos Pro Paper Edition will be available in Medium (338 x 219 x 8 mm, US$399.00 or about RM1,785) and Large (430 x 287 x 8 mm, US$549.90 or about RM2,460) by the end of this month.
