My daughter is actually a pretty phenomenal artist. I honestly don’t know where she gets it from. I can’t even draw a stick figure. Yet, here she is creating stuff like this…
So, a while back I got her a Wacom tablet so she could start creating things in Photoshop on the computer, in addition to the digital art she already creates with a stylus on her tablet. She didn’t end up using it very much, because she prefers to be able to see “pen to paper”. She didn’t like trying to draw on the Wacom tablet while looking up at the screen.
It seems like this might have been a problem for a lot of people, so Wacom set out to solve that problem and announced an amazing new product at CES. It is called the Wacom One Creative Pen Display.
The Wacom display actually mirrors the screen of the PC, Mac or even Android devices. It works with my daughter’s favorite drawing app, Autodesk Sketchbook and several other top creative apps like Adobe Sketch.
The surface feels like a natural drawing surface and sports a 13.3-inch monitor. Since the display doesn’t support multi-touch, you can rest your palm on it while drawing without worrying that it is going to ruin your artwork.
Another great feature is the fold-out kickstand legs to put the tablet at an angle. My daughter’s current tablet doesn’t offer this feature, and it can be really helpful during longer drawing sessions. You can also choose from a number of different pens that are compatible with the Wacom One for different pressures and thickness.
I’m super excited for my daughter to be able to try screen mirroring with the Wacom One Creative Pen Display and see if she ends up liking it more than her current Android tablet with a stylus! I can’t wait to see what she can create with the full power of a PC!
