ZoomPad is a revolutionary new way for artist and individuals to communicate with a computer. The mouse and keyboard has virtually not changed since the invention of the home computer. However, drawing with a mouse is similar to drawing with a rock. And drawing tablets today still have some unnatural irritating issues. ZoomPad is the first to take technology in a more natural and interactive direction. ZoomPad is designed according to instinctive human experience. This application was created to operate with a drawing tablet, however it can also work with a mouse.
Every digital artist knows that drawing tablets are useful tools, and nothing else in the industry compares to their technology. However, there is always room for improvement. There are two areas where drawing tablets today are lacking movement and shortcuts. Without an extensive change to the overall design of the drawing tablets by making a larger track pad and intergrading keyboard onto the tablets themselves, there really is no easy solution to this problem, until now.
With ZoomPad users can sit back and draw for the first time! They can sit as comfortably as they want with their tablets and smart phone in lap with no longer having to be at a desk and never having to resort back to their mouse and keyboard. It eliminates the need to switch back and forth between the tablet and the mouse/keyboard. With ZoomPad the drawing tablet then becomes not only a utility of drawing and high detail work, but also one for general use as well. This application makes the drawing tablet completely independent and makes using a drawing tablet faster, more efficient, and easily comprehendible.
The application is designed to function with any Mac or PC computer. It connects wirelessly to the computer via router (and soon Bluetooth), avoiding plug in connection time and tangling cords.
ZoomPad is keenly adapted to Photoshop allowing for special features like color swap, or layer options, as well as easy access to the control, command, alt and shift keys. It can also be used as a general tool when browsing the web. Furthermore, we are developing ZoomPads technology to be utilized in many other programs that require intensive art board zooming, mouse movement, and shortcut keys, as in Illustrator, Z brush, Maya, and others.
There are many other features that will continue to be added to the application. Overall, the application's concept is to virtually eliminate the need of a mouse and keyboard when using any drawing tablet and solve all movement and short cut problems. It will coincide with other programs to provide faster access to tools and utilities. It will also allow for more comfort for users and provide a natural art board feel and better movement, while making it faster for them to perform their tasks and complete their projects. This application will be ideal for users with drawing tablets of any size and brand, providing an even more awesome drawing experience.
