When I first looked at this I compared it to:

  1. Wacom Inkling (before the Wacom MobileStudio came out) - a ballpoint pen with pressure sensitivity that digitises all instances of contact while drawing physically on paper so that the drawing can be uploaded as a preliminary sketch on a computer.
  2. 3D Printing Pen - (like a hot glue gun) this device dispenses material so that it dries fast and strong for the purpose of building structures
  3. Virtual Reality Art - remonte controls allo the user to draw three dimensional art on a computer with the physical space around them
  4. Reverse-Oculus Rift Anime Glasses -  (prank/joke) allows the user to see the world in anime style

Only now did I realise that they were being sarcastic and that this isn't a prank (like the Reverse-Oculus Rift Anime Glasses):

  • "brings the sophistication of digital art into the real world"
  • "the Stylus IRL takes digital mechanics and puts them into physical space"
  • "pigment suspension"
  • "portable"
  • "The Stylus IRL works on all surfaces, even paper!"
  • "see the creative power behind this primitive yet revolutionary art tool"

So it is just a pen. It's about digital art being more predominant than physical/traditional. .-.

But at the time April Fools was published, I said this:

Deviantart would not make their own Wacom Inkling. Also, more importantly, with this StylusIRL you are able to smudge the ink in reality and in the digital world. The Wacom inkling cannot do this, that's coming from Wacom. Also, it is not possible to smudge the ink in the digitally as the Wacom Inlking is only used to draw lines. What I'm trying to say is, I would belive it, but its an April fools with the loose ends untied (like last year).

===================================================================================================

I overthought this. I was thinking, how can you draw digital lines in a physical space (Wacom cannot do this, 3D Printing cannot do this, Virtual Reality cannot do this). What kind of advanced holographic technology is this, it must be a joke. But that was the point, it is just a pen. "primitive yet revolutionary". 

._. :/ oh

To be fair, it's a pen that can be made to write in multiple different colors, which is honestly a pretty cool idea.

The ink doesn't look like it'd dispense... There's one flaw.

But, I didn't fall for this.

Nice one, though. ^^

I like mature comics like Watchmen, V for Vendetta or Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, I'm looking forward to buy "Making Comics" from Scott McCloud, and if you like a manga I recommend you this book

yes, me too, but was just a selector of previous uploaded art.

I prefered nag.iap.de/  but is now gone :( (you can see examples here: net.art-generator.com/src/imgs…)

There is still funny & interesting web generators, such as www.chromeexperiments.com/ glslsandbox.com 
www.random-art.org/online/
