For artists using Ipad, this is probably what we are waiting for. Fernando Jimenez from Mexico, who founded the company Plai brought up with his original idea of stylus for Ipad and with his team, developed Estylo 1.1. It is the first and so far the only wooden stylus for touch screen tablets, designed with the understanding of artists needs. According to their website, Estylo is stuffed with technology that the stylus can be easily detected by tablets without the need of exerting too much pressure. Estylo currently launched a campaign on Kickstarter for funding and hopefully, this will receive favor from artists and tablet users.
As artists, art is part of our everyday lives. Most artists bring their sketchpads with them just to make sure that when an inspiration caught their attention, they can grab the pencil and do some doodling. Well, I remember a lot of my friends who can’t leave without bringing their sketchpads with them. Anything can inspire us and it is but practical for artists to make sure that we are ready when that happens.
Technology wise, when Ipad has been released, artists are thinking of ways on how art can also be with them with the use of that technology. Perhaps, this technology developed especially for tablets like Ipad do the trick of transferring artists inspiration into digital arts.
