Wacom Sketcher Tablet for Designers

Wacom Sketcher is a concept tablet for graphical designers and selected for the hottest concept tech 2011 by T3 magazine and best of 2011 Tablet concepts by Designbuzz. The concept is a design by Max Battaglia, an industrial designer from Novara, Italy. The main difference between Sketcher and any other ordinary tablets that support graphical software is its accuracy and pressure levels sensitivity. Its light weight allows the user to carry the device everywhere as a real sketchpad. It includes 8 quick buttons and a jog dial. The buttons can be programmed for specified tasks and the jog dial gives the user the ability to zoom and turn the canvas without shifting the tablet position. Wacom Sketcher also has a 5.0 Mega Pixel camera for capturing sketches done on paper. Max Battaglia who designed this tablet, graduated from Politecnico of Milan has worked with several Italian design firms. Some of his clients are Fiat Group, Telecome Italia and Vodafone.
