The new way to take notes

Sick of having to type up all your handwritten notes? Good news: Bamboo Slate can do it for you. It captures all your notes digitally – which can then be exported as rich text or DOC files using the Ink to Text feature on the Wacom Inkspace app*.

The pen and pad accurately pick up all your unique handwriting quirks, meaning no details are lost. And you can work on whatever paper you choose – squared, lined or even a napkin.

Once you’ve got everything down, you can quickly sync notes to your device for sharing and editing. Plus, you can add a hashtag to each page, making easy to keep everything organized.

*Requires registration and a Wacom ID.


A visual thinker’s best friend

If you think in diagrams, graphs and mind-mapping, Bamboo Slate is the perfect companion. You can start by drawing on paper, then sync it to your device at the push of a button.

Whatever you draw, it’s easy to categorize and keep your work in order with our intuitive tagging feature. And you can doodle away on your favorite paper knowing that every stroke will be captured accurately.

A pen sensitive to your needs

When it’s time to digitize your work, you don’t have to worry about losing any of the detail. Bamboo Slate can pick up subtle changes in pressure from the Wacom Ballpoint pen – even through 80 sheets of paper.

The pen sits snugly in your hand and its ink cartridges can be easily replaced. All you have to think about is what you’ll create with it.


Get your ideas down on paper in remarkable detail.
