Today, Adobe introduced two new pieces of hardware to enhance the drawing experience on tablets, namely the stylus Adobe Ink and the connected ruler Adobe Slide.
Adobe Ink is a three-sided stylus for iPad running iOS7 that features 2048 pressure levels, the current highest standard for digital pens. Ink allows user to draw on the iPad and connects to Creative Cloud, where users can access their creative assets and their apps.
Adobe Slide is a digital ruler that works with Ink and the iPad (iOS7). Adobe developed the Adobe Line application that works with Ink and Slide for precision drawing. It makes all the lines drawn using Ink and Slide straight. It is very easy to create precise pattern or technical drawing with Line, Ink and Slide.
