Wacom Realism Stylus Samples Colors from the Real World – If Only It Were Real


I went and bought a stylus a few weeks ago, when I got hooked to OMGPOP’s Draw Something game. The craze has since subsided, but I still use my stylus a lot to doodle and just draw simple sketches on my tablet.

The game set me off on a course to find the perfect, if not the best tablet stylus out there, and I’ve settled with this one from the Wacom Realism project. Sure, it’s not real (yet!) but it’s impressive and packs on features that make it stand out from the rest.


The coolest feature of the Realism stylus is that it comes with a color sensor that can instantly scan colors from real-world objects and then output it on your display the next time you make a stroke. This is similar to Jinsu Park’s Color Picker pen concept, but seems much more useful built into a stylus.


The Wacom Realism project stylus was designed by Majel Korytar, and at this point remains only a concept.
