Whether you need to share some notes or quickly explain something through a sketch, like a new light setting you tried in your studio, tools like Bamboo paper, from Wacom, make it easy to not only create but also share online those ideas. Now more than ever, tools that allow to share new ideas or complex thoughts while staying home are crucial. What used to be a scribbled on a whiteboard or written on a sticky note by teams working face-to-face, now needs to be shared to virtual teams by email.
Bamboo Paper, along with a Wacom stylus or the Wacom One pen display, can enable easy digital sharing without the need to scan, or recreate in typed words. The app is also perfect to use with Wacom’s Bamboo Ink or Ink+ accessory digital pens that work with a wide range of pen-enabled PCs, Wacom One or Cintiq creative pen displays or Wacom Intuos or Intuos Pro tablets.
