Adobe has announced two new cloud-enabled hardware offerings: the “Project Mighty” stylus and the “Napoleon” guide and ruler.

“The Mighty is a pressure sensitive stylus that connects to the iPad via Bluetooth to allow digital artists to create line drawings with variable widths based on pressure,” Juli Clover reports for MacRumors. “According to TechCrunch, the pen is able to store a number of preferences and settings, including color palette themes, brushes, and assets saved in a cloud clipboard.”

Clover reports, “Adobe’s Napoleon is designed to function alongside the stylus, allowing users to draw straight lines and arcs, much like traditional drafting tools.”
