About the Product
Bamboo Ink is a smart stylus with pressure sensitivity, designed for the most natural writing feel on Windows 10 touch devices possible - just like using a pen on a paper notebook. It is perfect for authentic writing, note-taking and visualising ideas.
Create without limits. New Surface Pen is better and faster than ever, with precision ink on one end and a rubber eraser on the other — plus tilt for shading, greater sensitivity, and virtually no lag. Think With Ink: Windows and Office give Surface Pen more power than ever.
