Creativity is the spice of life, and technology has made high-end tools available to the everyday person at decent prices.

Take the feel of painting to digital with Nomad brushes. Create digital art with the layers and depth of paint on canvas; stylus brushes for iPad has been pretty popular for a couple years and for good reason. The iPad’s touch screen responds wonderfully to the brush strokes and there are plenty of great painting apps to try them out with.

 

USB Typewriter ($899)

Okay, so this one isn’t exactly affordable, but I couldn’t resist including it. Want the feel of typewriting plus having a digital copy of your work you can edit and share? This is the splurge item for you then. I’ve loved this idea since I first saw: set your iPad in the back of the typewriter, hook it up, and click away. The USB Typewriter can also be used with desktop computers.

 

Slate by iskn ($159)

I’ve wanted to test out the Slate for awhile; I’ve seen fantastic reviews of the product and it seems to sell out consistently. Place your notebook on the Slate, draw with the include pen, and watch your creations come to digital life in real time. You can also take the Slate with you; it’ll store the drawings you made while you were away from your device and add them later.

 

DokieGlove ($19.99)

The iPad Pro has fantastic palm rejection, but what if you have an older iPad? For those who like to sketch and draw, DokieGlove makes it easier to do so for longer periods of time. Holding your hand above the screen gets tiring and any light touch makes a mark on the digital page. However, with a glove special made for tablets, this is no longer a problem.

 

Clam Case by Incipio ($149.99)

The best way to turn your iPad into a laptop is with Clam Case. They look seriously professional and provide a full-sized keyboard for ease of use and maximum productivity. It’s made of lightweight aluminium and connect via Bluetooth for easy hookup. Also has a patented 360 hinge for viewing your screen at the perfect angle for movies and tv.
