Drawing or making any work art through a computer is a very tough job, especially for beginners. Using the mouse in forming shapes, changing thickness, changing colors, erasing and switching from one command to the other is lot of work and needs more time. To decrease the time consumed and to eliminate unnecessary efforts, a tool was invented, the digitizing or graphics tablet. A graphics tablet is defined as an input device, which consists of an electronic tablet and a cursor or a stylus pen that enables you to enter drawings and sketches into a computer.

One of the leading makers of graphics tablet is the Wacom. Wacom has invented different tablets for different users who use different programs. Wacom has already introduced their latest technology, the Wacom Intuos3.The Wacom Intuos3 consists of a tablet, a pen and a five-button mouse.The USB-based tablet is a flat screen where you make your drawing using a stylus pen. It represents the screen of the computer. Every point on the tablet has a corresponding point on the computer.The Intuos3 Grip pen is used to control your drawing. It is pressure-sensitive and has 1,024 levels of tip and eraser pressure sensitivity for an easy control. It is a cordless and battery-free pen with programmable DuoSwitch for comfort and productivity.

It is ball-free and optics-free for a smooth and accurate tracking. The purpose of this mouse is to prevent user from repetitive motion.
