At CES, Wacom announced their new Bamboo Smart stylus for select media tablets and 2-in-1 devices. Bamboo Smart for select Windows 2-in-1 devices enabled with Active Electro-Static (AES) technology. It offers pressure-sensitive precision and sublime comfort, producing handwritten notes and rough ink concepts that feel and look like they were produced by traditional media.
Two programmable side switches on the barrel of Bamboo Smart’s AES stylus allow for fast and convenient access to regularly used commands, such as right click or double click. The stylus requires a AAAA battery that will last approximately one year when used around three hours per day. The Bamboo Smart for Samsung features one side switch and requires no batteries or any type of charging.
Bamboo Smart users will find that they can get more out of their favorite productivity apps such as OneNote and Wacom’s own note-taking app, Bamboo Paper.
Bamboo Smart for select Windows 2-in-1 devices:
- Dell® Venue™ 10, 5000 Series (5050)
- Dell Venue Pro 10 5000 Series (5055)
- HP® Elite x2 1021 (New)
- Lenovo® ThinkPad® P40 Yoga™
- Toshiba dynaPad N72 (New)
Because AES technology is native to these devices, the Bamboo Smart works immediately, no pairing required. Bamboo Smart for Windows will be available in February.
