Join Tony Harmer for an in-depth discussion in this video Adobe's own hardware, part of Drawing on the iPad with Adobe Sketch.
- [Voiceover] Adobe have, for the first time in their history, moved into producing hardware. And this is that hardware, Adobe Ink and Slide. Ink is a beautiful hydro-formed stylus that does so much more than work as a drawing tool, it actually carries files around with it, and many, many features that it has. And Slide is a digital ruler. They are brilliant together.
I have had a play with them, I don't own them. We can't buy them in the UK at the time of recording, they won't be available here until later on this year, but they are manufactured by Adonit, so it kind of says a lot about Adonit Tech, really, that Adobe would choose them to do this, in fact Adonit do make quite a big deal of it on their site, and so they should. Fantastic things. The ruler, I'm not aware of anybody else that makes one, although to be honest, once I tried this one with Sketch, and also with Line, I wouldn't have looked anywhere else anyway.
They're great pieces of kit. So, there you are. They seem quite expensive on there, but you're getting two pieces of kit rather than just one, and they are really, really fabulous, and they work, of course, as you'd expect, beautifully with these applications.
