Adobe’s Mighty Pen and Napoleon Ruler Will Be Available in 2014
Adobe is about to make its material entry into the world of tech. Not many people could have seen this coming but sure enough, we’re on the cusp of Adobe hardware initialization. ‘Project Mighty’ and ‘Project Napoleon’ that were merely talked-about experiments back in May are now fully certified products slated for release in the first half of 2014. Project Mighty is a pressure-sensitive internet stylus with Bluetooth LE connectivity for linking up to devices like the iPad. Project Napoleon, its odd cousin, is a digital ruler for drawing all sorts of shapes. Two new apps will accompany these gadgets–Project Parallel is a drafting app for the iPad while Project Contour lets you transfer any shape from a picture taken on the iPhone to the iPad for simplified architectural design. These new hardware and software form part of the ecosystem surrounding Adobe’s Creative Cloud, which has already garnered a million subscribers since its launch in June.
