Meet Pencil, a super cool pen for iPads.  Very capable and reasonably priced.  Unfortunately, needs an iPad 3 or better to use (we’ve got an iPad 2.)

Pencil | FiftyThree.

I think direct stylus style input is neat, but truth be told, I’ve never been able to get into it.  Back in my PC days, I had a nice Wacom tablet, and after the gee wiz period, it pretty much just went back into the box.  I’m pretty sure I’ve still got it somewhere.  Wonder if I could rig it up to use it with my MBP.

    Wacom devices are a must-have if you work extensively with Photoshop or CAD tools. Otherwise, they’re pretty niche.

      I used to think I had some artistic capabilities (or at least sensibilities) but over the years I can never find the time or ambition… sniff.
