Pressure Sensitive Drawing on iPad [Video]

Ten One Design, makers of the Pogo Sketch, posted a demo video of their latest creation, a pressure-sensitive sketching software for the iPad that allows you to draw on screen with a stylus and it's able to capture different levels of pressure from that stylus. They've also included the possibility to exclude touch from your hands / fingers and let the iPad choose only touches form the stylus.

The bad news is, this software uses private frameworks and we all know Apple isn't very likely to approve apps that come with such implementations. If Apple will change its mind though, the developers promise they'll release the code for free so that other devs will be able to implement it in their apps.

What about building this right into iOS?
