Alongside a selection of software announcements for Creative Cloud customers, Adobe today announced development of a Bluetooth LE stylus that can connect to your iPad and be used with Adobe’s touch apps. The pen also connects to a user’s Creative Cloud account, allowing them to quickly access all their sketches, drawings and settings in seconds. The built-in button is customisable, and the stylus comes with a rechargeable battery and a pressure-sensitive nib. Check it out in the video below.

Adobe also announced the Napoleon, which is effectively a ruler to complement the Mighty. The ruler rests on the iPad’s screen, allowing users to draw straight lines without actually needing to align anything. The stroke will follow the ruler’s line even if the pen is centimeters away from the ruler. You can also use the ruler to draw uniform shapes easily and consistently.

The pair are currently still in development, and Adobe has only officially announced their compatibility with the Adobe Touch apps for now. There is no release date for the two devices, but rest assured once they are available we will be reviewing them in iCreate.
