    At CES Asia, Wacom CEO Nobu Ide discussed what’s next for the company in AI and VR.

    Wacom has done a great job offering tools for creative artists in a variety of form-factors and budgets. (For several years, I’ve advised new photographers to get their hands on a Wacom tablet to include in their post-processing workflow.)  But Wacom says there’s more to the company than just a stylus and connected tablet. 

    During CES Asia, Wacom CEO Nobu Ide discussed the company’s future focus and collaborations, which will provide even better experiences for its customers. 

    Ink in the air

    Designers and graphic artists take pride in creating art with depth and texture utilizing 3D space. However, Wacom’s current devices are two dimensional. The company recognizes and plans to tackle this.  

    “Wacom’s not a VR company. We are collaborating with some strategic partners, trying to come up (with) some very interesting solutions,” said Wacom CEO Nobu Ide.  

    Working with companies such as Gravity Sketch, an intuitive and immersive 3D design tool, Wacom has updated its pen device, which will allow designers and graphic artists the ability to “ink in the air.” While using a Wacom pen device, artists can wear a set of VR goggles, which are attached to their workstation, to draw and paint within a virtual 3D space. This allows a more intimate and intuitive user experience. While creating or modifying a project, artists can remove the goggles to view the project on a Wacom display tablet as they normally would in 2D.

    Cloud-based digital exams are eliminating paper and helping cut down on leaks and cheats.

    ___________________________________________________________________

    Welcome to the next generation of examinations, where everything revolves around an invisible connected platform, speeding up examination processes, minimising human error and bringing down exam-costs for colleges.

    Forget your foolscaps! The time-honoured paper booklet is steadily making way for a sleeker electronic exam-pad. The trusty ball pen is being replaced by a stylus and all the answers are now stored in the cloud. Even assessments are done digitally, so examiners don’t have to stay back for corrections.
    Welcome to the next generation of examinations, where everything revolves around an invisible connected platform, speeding up examination processes, minimising human error and bringing down exam-costs for colleges.
    Since 2016-17, students from a wide range of institutions have been writing their examinations on a device called the DigiTaal. These include those at Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE), National Institute of Mental Health and Neuroscience (Nimhans), International Institute of Information Technology and REVA University in Bengaluru, VIT- AP and the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University.
    Most of them rely on Paperless Examinations Advantage (PEXA), a customised cloud-based software that aims to overhaul the examination process and make it more streamlined, sustainable and environmentally friendly. The software was developed in 2015 by LittleMore Innovation Labs, a Singapore based EdTech Company, with a development center in Chennai.
    “Now storage is no more an issue for us and it has put an end to a lot of malpractices during the examination process, such as copying and paper leaks,” says Vinay NA, assistant professor at REVA University, which switched to paperless examinations in 2018.
