Embedded Technology and the Computer Stylus


Computer styluses used on graphic tablets can make for some amazing pieces of art, and graphic designers are perfectly aware of that. In a fluid industry that constantly demands creativity and innovation, the standards that apply to art and design also apply to the tools of such artists. Computer Styluses have evolved through the years, from the accessible to professional range and from Wacom to embedded LCD tablets, where you can draw on the screen of the tablet itself. The need to use more powerful technology to constantly upgrade these tools is helped in the case of the tablet and stylus, by using embedded software.

The stylus has the feel of a pen, and by using the correct design applications, it is possible to replicate the feel of a real pen on a digital screen. The core component is the technology used to construct it. One of the main reasons why designers shifted from using a mouse to a computer stylus is to disassociate themselves from the discomfort of drawing digitally with a mouse. Additional factors such as pressure sensitivity, size of the tablet and attached LCD screens are all aimed at enhancing user experience. By studying ergonomic trends, it is possible to constantly develop and improve embedded styluses designed to enhance use, invoke flexibility and provide for a product that is capable of creating a masterpiece.
