Kevin Kelly posted a review of his Wacom Cintiq 21UX this morning.
The pen has three tips: Standard, Stroke, and Felt. It also has an eraser. Both ends have 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity. There’s also a switch on the pen to pull up a popup menu.
Cintiq implements unique LCD technologies to achieve a natural paper-like experience. The surface has two coatings, one to diminish glare and another to provide a texture simulating the feel of paper. These surfaces are also hardened to provide durability and longevity. The LCD itself has been structured to eliminate any screen distortion when the pen tip is pressed against the surface. The result is an incredibly natural and intuitive experience.
