Rough Ideas Registered Digitally: Pencil App for Designers by 53 [Video]
Here is a high-tech method for registering rough ideas in a digital form. The creative team behind 53, known for developing the Paper app (a tool allowing users to sketch, write, draw, outline and color) recently came up with Pencil, in order to further develop the freedom of expression. For someone who is passionate about the old-fashion way of writing with pen and pencil on real paper, these two concepts may seem unappealing. But for designers and architects out there, they may prove to be useful, which is why we decided to present them on Freshome.
Here are some further details about the new tool from its developers: “Advanced technology meets beautiful design to keep you in the flow, without needing to switch tools. With Erase, Blend, and adaptive Palm Rejection, Pencil puts creative possibility in your hands. Rest your hand on the screen, write from any angle. No calibration or setup. You’ll forget you’re creating on a tablet. Be bold and make mistakes. Pencil’s unique built-in eraser lets you precisely carve away to get at what’s essential”. Have a look at the video below and see how the app works:
