Bamboo Spark is a smart folio with an active ballpoint pen and a sleeve for your favorite paper. Handwrite your notes on paper with the Bamboo Spark pen and the pressure sensitive folio will capture and store each stroke. With a push of a button, the handwritten notes will be saved digitally to the Bamboo Spark app for light editing. The Wacom Cloud gives you access to the content on most devices: smartphone, tablet or computer. The two-tone material on the Bamboo Spark cover represents the seamless link between analogue and digital. It comes in three models; gadget pocket, tablet sleeve or snap-fit.
