Pressure-Sensitive Drawing app for iPad

What could be the most delightful thing that can be done on iPad’s large screen? Of course its drawing!

Though, there are several apps in the App Store that let you tickle around the iPad with some great drawing apps, none of them promise you near Real-drawing experience as iPad lacks pressure sensitivity. The iPad’s IPS panel is NOT pressure-sensitive that’s why you would not get that experience,  but with some clever software and a special capacitive stylus, the folks at Ten One Design built a convincing proof of concept that works in practice.

Stylus producer Ten One Design – best known for their Pogo stylus, that works with the capacitive touchscreens used on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad – has demonstrated an app which would allow iOS based devices to respond to pen pressure.  Like on a professional graphics tablet, that would allow iPad artists to adjust line-thickness depending on how hard they pressed.

How Pressure-sensitive drawing works: The idea is simple, when the  stylus is pressed down, the soft tip of the stylus expands like a brush, generating a “larger press” that can be detected by the algorithms written in the app. They also have plans to make this library open source for people to re-use and innovate on it.
