Wacom Wants To Set The Standard For Digital Ink

on Wednesday, Feb. 26th

Drawing tablet manufacturer Wacom is looking to create a new standard for digital ink that would make handwritten and drawn marks interoperable between programs. TechCrunch’s Darrell Etherington has the details on Project WILL (Wacom Ink Layer Language):

Wacom is trying to do what HTML did for the web, but with digital ink instead. That would mean that you could conceivably create ink-based content in an application like Photoshop, and then have that information recognized, read and understood by, say, a collaboration app from a completely different developer on iOS. This could work between drawing apps, but also be used to translate signatures across software, recognize handwritten notes in various applications, and facilitate group collaboration on the same project from multiple endpoints.

This seems wonky, but a standard like WILL could have a big impact.
