After working with Magic Leap on the Spacebridge interactive workspace, Wacom is going back to what it does best: making kickass graphic tablets and the accessories that go with them.

As we all know, 3D professionals have delicate emotions hands – not that they don’t know hard work, but it’s not quite the coal mines. Anyway, a thicker stylus just ain’t comfortable. (amirite?) Wacom’s new Pro Pen slim is a stylus built more like a classic pen or pencil and comes with an astounding 8,192 levels of pressure sensitivity, tilt recognition, and a lovely eraser.

Unlike their other Pro Pen styluses (or styli) that feel like you’re holding a giant crayon, the Pro Pen slim was designed to feel more like a classic pen or brush. The stylus measures 6.18″ (157.05mm) in length, 0.37″ (9.5mm) in diameter, and weighs a total of 0.42 ounces (12g) – making it Wacom’s slimmest and lightest stylus yet.

However, it brings in the best of the Pro Pen line. The tip comes with five interchangeable aluminum color rings and +/-60 degrees of tilt recognition, along with two customizable side switches which allow you to switch your digital brushes and tools on the fly. Lastly, the Pro Pen slim brings back the eraser to the opposite end to respect that muscle memory you’ve gained over the years.

Powering this stylus is Wacom’s cordless, battery-free EMR technology which allows for a convincingly lag-free drawing experience. Aside from the mentioned features, the Pro Pen slim also comes with four standard nibs, two felt nibs, and a nib removal hole for a more customizable stylus

The Pro Pen slim works with Wacom MobileStudio Pro, Cintiq, Cintiq Pro, and Intuos Pro. It’s available for $79.95 first released in Japan, and now available worldwide.
