How do digital pens work?
There are two main types of digital pen. The stylus, which draws directly onto your tablet screen, and the smart pen, which uses special paper. They work in slightly different ways.
A smart pen tracks the movements you make by following invisible lines and points across the special paper. This data is then transferred wirelessly via the pen’s Bluetooth antenna to your PC, tablet or mobile. This all happens in real time, so your drawings appear on screen almost immediately.
Digital stylus pen
Many commercial artists and hobbyists today use a digital stylus such as Apple Pencil. With a digital stylus, you can draw directly onto the screen of your tablet computer. Drawing directly on a tablet makes for a more natural drawing experience than connecting the tablet to a display via USB cable.
