LET’S CRE­ATE

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - TEST BENCH -

Cre­ativ­ity can’t be re­stricted to pen and pa­per. So Ge­nius, like Wa­com, has launched a tablet to meet the de­mands of pro­fes­sional graphic artists. The MousePen M508WX is a sleek tablet that comes with a pen and cord­less mouse. The tablet is pow­ered by AA bat­ter­ies, but you need to con­nect a don­gle to the PC af­ter in­stalling the soft­ware. Then you need to launch­ing the io Tablet soft­ware for it to spring to life.

Un­like other tablets, this has a work­able area of 5x 8 inches. We can cre­ate a new sheet to draw or write by launch­ing the Pen Drawer and se­lect­ing the tools from the tool box. The work­sheet, by de­fault, is saved into a JPG file. How­ever, we can choose from a wide range of file op­tions like PNG, MNG, TiF, TGA, etc. There is also a Pen Sign tool.

Four con­ve­nient keys above the work­able area help users to go back, erase, zoom in and zoom out. The 2.4 wire­less con­nec­tion aided by the don­gle lets you work within a 10me­ter ra­dius. Like other tablets, the pen is also the mouse for all prac­ti­cal pur­poses and dou­bles as a se­lec­tion tool. It takes some time get­ting used to though.
