Going where it has never gone before, the software major Adobe today announced its first hardware products. After a very disastrous start to the year with hacking and loopholes in its software updates, the Photoshopping giant seems to have got its act together. The two company has announce two products. One of the product is 'Mighty.' Mighty is essentially a connected pen, which can draw naturally like a normal pen or pencil. Adobe calls it a the "Cloud Pen". Mighty is highly pressure sensitive and is connected to the Creative Cloud through a software and local Bluetooth LE connection. Mighty has a a three-sided twisted form that is said to be inspired by the ergonomics of holding a pen.
The second of the hardware announce by Adobe is Napolean. Napolean is a digital ruler that is designed to work along with Mighty. The Napoleon can create digitally projected edge that can be used to accurately draw shapes and lines. One of its features is the ability to snap to vanishing point, which makes drawing with perspective points in mind easier.
As of today, Adobe is testing both, the Napoleon and Mighty on iPad and the demonstration was quite impressive. Adobe said that the software for connecting Napolean and Mighty is in testing phase and has been specially written for them. However, Adobe refused to comment on whether such a device will actually be produced.
