New Delhi, May 11 2016: Leading manufacturer of interactive pen tablets and displays --Wacom -- has unveiled Bamboo Spark, the smart folio that allows people to take handwritten notes to capture, shape and share ideas. Once written on the notepad in Bamboo Spark and with the push of a button, Spark synchronizes whatever has been written or sketched to the Wacom Cloud, storing it for later refinement.
Bamboo Spark brings note-taking into the 21st century by offering a convenient way to capture ideas in both physical and digital ink to save them for further editing.
How it Works
Bamboo Spark marries the tactile joy of a traditional inking pen with the company’s core digital pen technology in a smart pen and smart folio. The product allows users to write and sketch with Bamboo Spark’s traditional ink pen on most A5 (148 x 210 mm or5.83 x 8.27 inches) paper. The smart folio’s EMR (Electro-Magnetic Resonance) board, which communicates with the Bamboo Spark pen, has the same technology found on Wacom’s branded professional products, offering proven, near-perfect digital input.
The getting started process is incredibly user-friendly. Simply download the Bamboo Spark app on an iOS or Android device with Bluetooth® Smart technology. Next, pair the device with the app and start making ideas happen. Every stroke is saved within the app by simply pushing the button in the center of the device, saving up to 100 pages even in offline mode.Refine and edit notes in the Bamboo Spark app or export them to Bamboo Paper, Evernote or Dropbox. The free Wacom Cloud account provides users access to content across devices. Charge the Bamboo Spark folio via USB for approximately 8 hours of continuous use. Bamboo Spark’s pen combines traditional ink with the company’s state of the art EMR technology, allowing for traditional ink on paper to be converted instantly to digital content.Ink refills are available on the Wacom estore, and should allow for up to three months of use. For users looking for a more robust editing experience, Bamboo Paper, Wacom’s premium note-taking application, allows tablet users to further enhance their digital work thanks to WILL universal ink. WILL, the Wacom Ink Layer Language, is a soon-to-be industry standard that offers handling of pen input (strokes) regardless of software, hardware or operating system.
