We’re now lending a Wacom tablet as part of our equipment lending program. This is the Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet, and it you can use it with your fingers as well as with the electronic pen. As with our other equipment, you can borrow it for up to 3 days at a time. It comes with the tablet, the pen, and an installation CD that includes the PC/Mac software drivers and a short tutorial on how to use the tablet.
Ultimately it’s really just a fancy mouse, so you can use it any way you like, but here in the lab, we mostly use tablets like this when we’re using Photoshop, which can take advantage of the pressure sensitivity of the Pen, and it makes for a much more fluid experience when you’re drawing or painting on the computer.
Login with your PennKey and reserve the tablet online at http://checkout.sas.upenn.edu/.
