Pen concept for the new V. It has been upgraded to A.E.S. 2.0 technology which will give it more precision, better palm rejection, less jitter, and reduced ghost touches. It will have 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity and tilt detection which will be great for digital art, marking up documents, and taking notes. There is a button to switch between pen and eraser and a programmable button at the bottom to quick launch notes, take a photo, or anything you want.
I was imagining the eraser on the end to be used in the same way as Microsoft’s Surface Pen, in that you just flip it over and it automatically switches over to using the eraser tool and use it as you normally would with a regular pencil.
It’s only a concept, so there’s no guarantee the new pen will look like this. I always thought the Surface Pen was cool with the eraser, but if it not as great an idea in real life, I can always edit it and make it better.
Hey @adt - just wanted to get back with you with an update.
The old pen and current pen use differing technologies, and there will be no designed interoperability between the old and new pens and their respective counterpart Vs. The same holds true for nibs, as well. The only interoperable parts are the AAAA batteries.
(2,3,4) We’re currently evaluating each of these and will get back with the community.
After checking with our Product Manager @Rob, I’m happy to report back with an answer.
The V will work with any pen that supports the Wacom AES 2.0 protocol, regardless of manufacturer. Any pen you are looking at for the V 2021 must support that specific protocol, though, as Wacom uses multiple protocols across all of their own devices, so not every Wacom pen will automatically work with the V.
