Wacom Bamboo Spark


The Wacom Bamboo Spark is a smart folio that makes it seamless to send handwritten paper notes to your phone or tablet.

Slim and light. Simple setup and syncing. Sensitive input tracking on real paper with ink-equipped ballpoint pen. Accurate handwriting-to-text feature.

Only records one page at a time. Proprietary pen cartridges mean you have to order future ink from Wacom.

Light Weight

Very often slow to work. Very limited in what it can do. Individual charger needed. No colours. Same pen widths and shapes. Should operate directly to internet. Paper moves making it difficult to enjoy. Disappointing product, waste of money!

Wacom Bamboo Spark CDS-600G Pocket


Good old pen and paper is still better than electronics for taking notes, sketches, scribbles, ideas, lists etc etc. Electronics are better for saving, indexing, retrieving etc. Put the two together in a simples, seemless way and you get the Bamboo Spark!

The pen is great but the size of the ink refills is very small.
