While Hall 5 has more software and solutions than you can shake a stick at, it has very few 'cool' products. However, if you look hard enough then you will uncover at least one particular gem.

While Hall 5 has more software and solutions than you can shake a stick at, it has very few 'cool' products. However, if you look hard enough then you will uncover at least one particular gem — the Cintiq 15X Interactive Pen Display from Wacom. Now, although the title is a bit of a turn off, the graphic LCD tablet will, in fact, blow you away.

Aimed primarily at the design and architecture markets, the slinky panel allows the user to work directly on the screen using its 'special' pen. Unlike similar solutions, the 15X allows the designer to work as if they were using paper, which ensures that eye/hand coordination is retained.

While such futuristic fun normally stings the pocket, Christian Steffenhagen, regional sales manager for Wacom, explains that the 15X is actually an affordable bit of kit as it costs 'only' Dhs7100.
