Hand drawing meets digital
The HP Tilt pen adds a whole new dimension to touch screen technology. The boundless creativity of hand drawing meets the precision of the digital canvas. If you wield a sturdy pen, you’ll appreciate the accuracy with which the HP Tilt pen captures your precise hand movements.
You’ll love this pen if you’re a digital artist. In the past, illustrators had to draw on paper first, then they’d scan their drawing into software if they wanted to animate it or add digital supplements. Or illustrators had to create digital drawings entirely with a computer mouse, which lacks the ergonomic precision that a pen has.
Digital drawing is no longer bound by the mouse. Now you can use your free hand to draw and instantly have your creation transmitted into software. Whether you’re creating digital illustrations or editing photography, the HP Tilt pen allows you to draw anything you want. Create a digital painting, and use the pen to create shapes, shades, and colors. Or use the pen to draw masks on photo editing software or map effects in video editing software.

. These computers combine laptops and tablets. You’ll have a full-sized keyboard, software, and all the powerful components of a laptop, but you’ll also have the touch screen capabilities of a tablet. 2-in-1 laptops allow you to fold back the keyboard or remove it altogether so that you can use the touch screen with greater ease.
The best note-taking, period
The HP Tilt pen is perfect for students, too. You may be used to taking notes typing on a laptop. But sometimes, handwritten notes are faster and easier.
A standard pen and paper are better for writing down equations, and you need to be able to sketch on something if you’re an art student. The HP Tilt pen gives you the best of both worlds. When you use the pen with a tablet or touch screen-enabled laptop, you’re able to harness all the speed of a keyboard with the flexibility of a pen. You can take notes fast, and you can take notes on anything.
Take to the field
The pen is perfect for field work. If you’re an art student, take it to the museum to make sketches. If you’re a contractor, use the pen to take notes or work out equations.
HP pen vs HP Tilt pen
What’s the difference between the HP Tilt pen and the HP pen
? Both are innovative pieces of technology, and each one is best suited for different purposes.
The HP pen is perfect if you’re going to be using simple hand strokes, like taking notes. There are two buttons on the pen, one for drawing and the other for erasing.
The HP Tilt pen incorporates new technology that recognizes pen tilt. It can detect when you’re tilting the pen and how much you’re tilting it. This is great for digital artists, who know that the way in which you tilt a pen can determine the size of a brushstroke. The pen can detect advanced hand movements, like sketching, with extreme accuracy.
The HP Tilt pen also has an eraser. It has a rubbery feel just like a real eraser, and you can use it to “erase” your digital drawings. Because it requires more power to operate, the HP Tilt pen can be charged via a USB-C port and isn’t dependent on batteries.
The other difference between the two pens is stylistic - the HP pen is a lighter color, while the HP Tilt pen is darker.
Compact and compatible
Use the HP Tilt pen on HP devices that have Microsoft Pen Protocol (MPP).
One of the best things about the HP Tilt pen is that it looks and feels just like a real pen. Shorter than 6 inches and weighing less than half a pound, the pen could almost fit right in with other office supplies if it wasn’t so stylish. It’s small enough to fit into any laptop bag or your pocket.
And, most importantly, it fits comfortably in your hand. We didn’t reinvent pen design. We reshaped technology to emulate real-world ergonomics.
