The Bamboo Pad is a touchpad with a digital stylus.
Using touches and gestures on the Bamboo Pad makes navigating in operating systems such as Windows® 8 (or Mac OS X 10.7+) more intuitive and convenient than with a traditional mouse. Thanks to its particularly thin profile, the pad is ergonomic and comfortable to use for hours on end.
The special feature of the Bamboo Pad, however, is its digital stylus, which is especially useful whenever you would use a pen instead of your finger in your non-digital life: e.g. for making quick notes and doodles or for marking and annotating texts. With just a few strokes of the stylus, you can give things like e-mails a personal touch by adding handwriting, a hand-drawn smiley, or other customised details. What is more, hand-drawn visualisations can be used to spruce up your presentations and make them really stand out.
Setting up the Bamboo Pad is as easy as operating it: thanks to plug and play technology, no installation is needed on Windows 7 and Windows 8. A driver for the Mac OS X operating system is available from www.wacom.com.
