It's interesting, but Verge is wrong to compare it to Apple's Force Touch as this thing doesn't give any haptic feedback (which I find much more valuable than pressure sensors).
Hi Stefan, it actually is able to have haptic feedback but as of right now this specific form factor does not.
As an artist who is spending too much time in front of a computer and almost none in front of an easel, the idea of using REAL brushes really gave me tingles.
I hope this product comes to light. I'd love to have one.
Agreed, this in particular is bonkers. Very exciting.
You can actually Pre-order it now at http://bit.ly/1knSiPc if you're still interested!
