Inspired by its analogue predecessor – an art student’s drawing pad – the innovative Slate by iskn combines traditional paper drawing with digital image technology.
Ideal as a companion for pencil-and-paper lovers who prefer an authentic feel to drawing on a screen, the Slate allows you to place a sheet between its reference points then draw like you would in any sketchpad, while it transfers your creations instantly into digital form on the device of your choice: via Bluetooth for iPad and iPhone, or USB for Mac and PC.
Compact and lightweight, the Slate has been specially designed to carry with you, anywhere, anytime. Simply slip it into your bag or carry it in its wool felt sleeve, designed to provide protection on-the-go.
Also featuring a ‘screenless’ mode, the Slate can operate as a standalone device, with 7 hours available battery life and 4GB of internal memory, allowing it to capture your ideas in the moment then transfer them when you reach home.
Presented with a black ballpoint pen and a smart ‘Ring’ that you can fit onto your favourite pencils to relay your designs into digital form, the pen and ring allow you to maintain the authenticity of hand-created strokes.
Based in Grenoble, iskn works towards developing 3D writing software to assist creatives and bring handwritten art forms into the digital world.
