I generally don't post random gadgets on this blog but I think this one could potentially affect other creatives like myself.  Thanks for the heads up Dennis.
Wacom has announced a pretty amazing product today, the Inkling. This digital sketch pen allows you to capture whatever you draw or write on a sketchbook or any kind of paper in digital form, “stroke by stroke”. Just insert a sheet of paper or a notebook into the receiver, use the Inkling Digital Pen and transfer your works to your computer to refine them digitally anytime later.
Wacom says that Inkling even lets users create layers in the digital file while sketching on paper, with the push of a button. Works can be stored as JPEG, BMP, TIFF, PNG, SVG and PDF files for use with any kind of application that supports these formats. The Inkling offers direct transfers to Photoshop, Illustrator, and Autodesk Sketchbook Pro/Designer.

At only $199 retail, only two words can describe this: Pre Order.
