Giveaway: Wacom Bamboo Tablet

| December 12, 2011

Are you a techie geek? Do you love the latest gadgets?

Yes? Read on!

No? Then most definitely READ ON!

I have an exciting and fun and intuitive gadget for you to win today: a Bamboo multi-touch and pen tablet from Wacom worth £89.99 + the wireless kit. It is a clever “tablet” that makes using your computer a lot more fun; having both a pen for precision work and multi-touch functionality for hand gestures. Love both? Get both.

More from Wacom:

What is Bamboo?

All of us are using technology more and more in our daily lives. There’s no avoiding it. Some of it makes life easier. Some of it just makes things worse.

The aim of Bamboo is to make using the most sophisticated and complicated technology as simple, intuitive and natural as possible. Why can’t drawing and sketching on a computer be as simple as drawing and sketching on a piece of paper? Why can’t making notes on electronic documents be as intuitive as scribbling in the margins? Bamboo helps you do all these things and more. You can draw on photographs, play games and use your fingers to flick through files, rotate images and so on. Bamboo Fun (small) even comes with Photoshop Elements 8 and ArtRage 3.

Whether you want to work on a desktop or laptop, our products offer the simplicity and immediacy of touch technology combined with the precision and craftsmanship of digital pen technology.

It is our aim as Wacom to provide technology tools that help people be themselves whoever they are, whatever they do, however they do it.

Want one?

Easy… all you have to do is:

1) As Wacom is all about ‘you are what you do’, we would love to hear which art activity will your family be doing over Christmas?

Open to UK only.

Closes 19th December 2011.

Winner will be selected at random.
