This is the Cintiq I’ve been waiting for and great to see Autodesk and other developers embracing touch and stylus interaction into the product’s work flow.
Today I interviewed Ron Cobb (Alien, Aliens, Back to the Future, Last Star Fighter, Star Wars, etc.) and Syd Mead (2010, Tron, Blade Runner, Aliens, etc.) for GreenlightSummit.com Web Conference. After the session Ron wanted to continue the discussion with his thoughts on how the future is perceived from a vantage point of now or the past and that the future is probably much less recognisable if we were to actually time travel from now to some point in the future.
Ron and I would love to continue this discussion with Syd and many others.
My NUI research is based on the near future as you have seen from my blog and looking further out becomes far more fragmented and random for prediction as you will hear more about from Ron.

Wes took me through the ‘on screen’ settings for the new Cintiq24HD while I was at the Wacom stand at NAB 2012 in Las Vegas.
Intuos5 has several characteristics in terms of productivity, as the four key functions of the Touch Ring and ExpressKeys that can be customized to suit your shortcuts and modifiers to your favorite applications. The new display innovative Express View provides a reminder of your ExpressKeys settings on the screen so you can stay focused on your screen and your work. Let the guys at Wacom give you a full demo this week at (NAB stand SL2809)
The Cintiq 24HD is the flagship product of Wacom’s Cintiq range and has been designed for professional use, setting new standards for everybody working in 3D design, animation, game development, industrial design and visual effects. I finally got to see one in the flesh today at the NAB show in Las Vegas. Nice!
Part of my role as Global Partner and Evangelist Manager for Wacom is to write/edit corporate communications for the Investor Relations department in Japan, reporting directly to Wacom’s CEO. Wacom’s Annual Report is the latest of many such documents produced in the past two years.
