Adobe seems to be making some serious moves today as they announced they’ll be moving their products beyond physical boxes and instead will allow its customers to purchase them online through subscriptions. But that isn’t the only bit of news the company is announcing as they’re also looking to create two pieces of hardware known as the Project Mighty stylus and Napoleon ruler.
Both the stylus and ruler use low-energy Bluetooth to communicate with an iPad or iPhone and will work in collaboration with their new Creative Cloud software. The stylus features a button on it that when press, pulls up a menu within its software which allows the user to access a number of design options and content.
The Napoleon ruler was named in homage of the famous French emperor, although it’s an extremely short ruler, which we’re sure Mr. Bonaparte wouldn’t appreciate. Aside from its name, the ruler can be placed on the screen and can work in collaboration with the stylus to help create sharp lines and curves. You know, just like an actual ruler.
Both Project Mighty and Napoleon are said to be “just the beginning” with no word as to when or if they’ll be released as a consumer product. Either way, we’re sure many of you mobile designers out there are looking forward to something like this, especially since they’re products that will come directly from Adobe.
