uPlus Pen translates paper drawings to computers

updated 03:25 pm EDT, Thu September 28, 2006

uPlus Digital Pen

Artists and animators used to traditional drawings often have difficulty adjusting to tablets, even direct-to-screen models such as Wacom's Cintiq. The smooth surfaces of these input devices rarely have the same tactile feel as paper, leading to mistakes as users adjust. The Korean company Easy Systems has developed its uPlus Pen as a way of easing these artists into digital creation or even replacing a conventional computer tablet entirely. The pen translates the pressure applied to a special paper format into art for a program such as Photoshop, allowing artists to see the immediate results of their work while producing an exact digital copy. The uPlus can also adapt the on-screen output to different art styles: it can mimic ballpoint pens, pencils, writing brushes, and even highlighters. Pricing and shipping information aren't yet available.
