Michael Gough, VP of Experience Design for Adobe, has highlighted three main projects of Adobe XD today. He stated in his official blog, "The team has been exploring how new form factor displays, new interactions (like touch and gesture), cloud connections and even new hardware might change how you all create and in turn how it might impact what software we need to build. And we have been having a serious amount of fun."
Gough revealed the new analog and digital features added to Adobe XD. First and foremost is "Mighty". Is is a cloud based pen which is a first physical hardware from Adobe. A new kind of pen that is build with the help of Robert Brunner's industrial design firm, Ammunition. This pen is surely be the future of drawing as it helps you to draw a natural and expressive line with its pressure sensitive feature. It is a unique pen that has Bluetooth feature that can connect it with Creative Cloud by the help its software. A cloud clipboard is also offered to users for saving and reusing cloud text and drawing content.
The second analog feature revealed is the new digital ruler named Napoleon. With the help of Mighty connected pen and Napoleon digital ruler, you can easily draw anything on your smartphones. Last but not least is the Project Context. Gough called Context is an answer to “big content.” Context is used along with InDesign and the Digital Publishing Suite. It provides users an unimaginable working environment to edit and publish not only for Wired publishers but also for other publishers too.
All of the three above mentioned XD features can now provide users such an environment in which they can use cloud based digital physical hardware. This will help them to use every possible element of both digital and the analog worlds. Users can increase their productivity level and can boost their confidence on themselves as an artist.
