Wacom Bamboo Spark Video Review

Recently, someone pinged me the photo of a review I wrote in 2010 about an electronic note-taking device. She wanted to know if something similar, that converts offline strokes into online data was available. And this, coincidentally, happened exactly the same week as I got the Wacom Bamboo Spark for review.

Wacom has been a major player in the digital arts creation space for many years now. Illustrators around the world prefer to use Wacom products to create their works offline and transfer them online in a jiffy. Wacom is now bringing the same learning and technology to regular note taking.

Wacom Bamboo Spark 

Price: Rs 10,975

The Wacom Bamboo Spark is actually a smart folio with a tablet sleeve Bluetooth ready smart devices. So this works for people who already have a tablet or a phablet, I don’t think it makes sense for those with a smartphone that has a screen smaller than 5-inches. But first you should have the need for something like this, which I think is a very niche space.

So how does this work?

The best thing about the Bamboo Spark is the fact that it is like any other folio. In this case, one which can easily hold your tablet, a pen and a note book. All three of these are crucial here. You write on the notepad, with the pen on the folio. The folio has Bluetooth inbuilt which lets it transfer whatever is written or drawn on the notepad to the tablet via the Bamboo Spark app. However, the pen is crucial, because that is what records the strokes and note pad is purely incidental. In fact, you can use any notepad of the size for this purpose.
