Inking and touch shine with intuitive technology
Adding in Ink and touch capabilities—on top of the 3D compatibility—is a gamechanger for the creative process. Using devices like Sprout Pro, users can scan and capture 3D images, then edit them effortlessly with Ink.
“The Microsoft operating system features that I think are really valuable for my students is number one the Inking program,” Rivera said. “It's something that is almost like they would experience in their sketchbooks. It happens right in front of them and it's just as valuable to them as regular drawing.”
Beyond enhancing education and learning scenarios, Windows 10 enables Inking and 3D capabilities that enrich collaboration in a wide range of areas by eliminating the need to switch between analog and digital media.
“If you think about a pencil, or a pen, or a stylus, it's been around forever. You can express yourself. You can go up to a white board and draw,” Short said. “Why it's taken this long to actually become pervasive in a desktop is a little unusual. You could always have a solution, but it wasn't really an integral, inherent part of an operating system.”
