Wacom has today revealed its latest display device aimed at artists and designers, the Cintiq 13HD pen display. A 13-inch display running at a 1080p resolution, it's a pen-controlled screen designed to let creatives sketch, draw and colour digital images…
Earning your place among the iPad accessory elite in a market already so cluttered is difficult enough, but for touchscreen styluses it's even harder. With presumably the majority of touchscreen owners equipped with ten fingers that work perfectly fine on capacitive screens, a stylus is a particularly hard sell. Can Wacom's Bamboo Stylus for iPad prove its worth, or are you better off just using your own stubby digits for ultimate touchscreen control?
Wacom, best known for its graphics tablets has suddenly and unexpectedly announced that it’s bringing out a completely different bit of hardware – a DJ controller.
The Wacom Nextbeat contains a pair of digital audio players, a mixer, a sampler and some fx units. All you need to add is a phat pair of speakers, and you’ll be cranking out the tunes faster than you can say: “Have you got anything by the Shaman?”
The interesting bit is that the main circular unit and the dials above can actually be removed from the unit while it’s still operating. If you want to go see what it sounds like for your audience then you can do exactly that, while still retaining tight control of your mix.
It’ll be out sometime this summer in Europe and Japan, but there’s no word on how much it’ll cost. Hopefully I’ll be able to get my hands on one – as a bit of an amatueur DJ, I’d love to give this a whirl in front of an audence and see how it compares to other DJ controllers.

I was originally going to try to write this whole post just using the tablet and bamboo scribe to convert my handwriting into text, but then I realised that it would take me hours. I don’t have hours, so you’ve got a keyboarded post instead.
Wacom has just announced a whole host of new applications for their “Bamboo” range of consumer input tablets. There’s Bamboo Scribe, Bamboo Link, Bamboo Space, Bamboo Dock and Bamboo Minis…
Laptops are generally known for portability – the idea being that you can sling it in your bag and carry it with you wherever you go. I wouldn’t try lugging about the Lenovo ThinkPad W700 too much though, as you might risk back problems. It’s massive.
Perhaps the main reason it is so gigantic is the built in Wacom tablet – which in the photo looks like a massive touchpad…
Wacom has announced its new Cintiq 12WX, a high end graphics tablet solution that's sure to appeal to anyone who works with a lot of artistic, technical drawing, and digital content applications. It features a high quality 12.1-inch widescreen…
Finally we managed to convince one of the Shiny men to do a video review with us, and what better person to ask for this Wacom Bamboo Tablet, than Sheldon, our web designer? In this video,..
