Do you think there are plans to make the iPad pressure sensitive?
Not referring to styluses.
There probably is, but you have to make the perfect pen too. In Apple's case, they want to charge us $100 for a super duper cool pen that they can make in different colors, hahaha. .
I believe there was an effort to simulate pressure sensitivity by measuring the change in surface area of touch points. When you tap lightly you only touch a small area, but the harder you press with a soft stylus or fingertip will increase the surface area of touch point, which could be interpreted as more pressure by the app.
I agree that it should come to the device whether hardware or software. However I just want it for pen input.
Also, there is already an implementation which utilizes the accelerometer to sense a harder press vs softer press. Example is piano in GarageBand.
Don't think so just like Apple would never give us a "pen" or "stylus" etc
