Winner Tech Accessory of the Year
Guide price: £130
The Inkling feels like a normal pen and lets you sketch in any paper notepad, but a module clipped to the top of the page records a perfect digital copy of what’s in your sketchbook – right down to the pressure of your penstroke. You can play back an animation of your drawing taking shape in the Sketch Manager software, and export your creations as multi-layered Photoshop files. Indispensible for artists, illustrators and designers, just plain cool for the rest of us.
