Wacom tablets (and similar) are actually drawing-style surfaces that you use with a stylus, so it can mimic "traditional media" techniques. They by far pre-date iPads and all that.Wow I was just thinking about this earlier today with a regular tablet like an iPad but I put it out of my head immediately thinking they're just not powerful enough for serious editing yet. I didn't know about the Wacoms.
It would be so convenient when travelling or editing on the go.
Except that they have pressure sensitivity and are far more precise in use than a mouse.yes......that WOULD be cool, but there's just a user interface....like a mouse.
Likewise, except mine is no longer plugged in. Not even worth selling, really. Mine was bought something like 10 years ago (maybe longer, I think I still had a PC back then) and basically I have no idea why I bothered.I bought one a year ago thinking I needed one. Used it about twice/ thrice. But although its plugged in it mostly serves as a place mat for my coffee
