Wacom Colorelli Tablet

Normally known for its emphasis on professional artists, Wacom has recently introduced Colorelli, a combination computer tablet and game targeted at children aged 5 and up. Through a series of artistic and design-oriented games, players are encouraged to both develop creative expression as well as learn practical drawing skills; the system was designed in tandem with educators and child psychologists, Wacom says. The tablet has many of the same features as the company's professional models, including a 5-inch by 3.6-inch active drawing area, a 512-level pressure-sensitive pen, and a 1000 DPI effective tablet resolution. The game requires a 1.2GHz Windows XP system with a DVD drive, but the tablet itself connects via USB and should be compatible with both MacOS X and Windows PCs. Wacom is shipping Colorelli first to Europe on November 6th for 60 Euros ($75 US).
