Another exciting announcement from the Adobe MAX first day keynote was Adobe’s explorations into cloud enabled hardware for creative processes. Adobe announced two exciting new pieces of creative hardware: Project Mighty and Project Napoleon.

Project Mighty is a pressure sensitive pen that enables expressive drawing. However, it’s not *just* a pressure sensitive stylus/pen. Project Mighty knows who you are, and is connected to Creative Cloud to enables quick access to your personalized Kuler themes, and a cloud-clipboard for copying assets across devices.

Project Napoleon is a tool designed to complement Project Mighty by bringing an analog experience back to the digital creation process. Project Napoleon is a drawing aid that enables the experience of a T-square or Triangle in the digital/tablet world.

You can check out both of these tools in action in this excerpt from the Adobe MAX day-one keynote:
