The story of Wacom started when it’s CEO
Masahiko Yamada back in 1983 realized the importance of pen and paper for
people as an expressive device to showcase their creativity and so the
pen/tablet they came up with computer pens instead of keyboard or mouse that
were not good enough for the creative people to express themselves fully. In
1984, they produced a cordless pen/ tablet with a battery powered pen but later
this technology didn’t prove to be so strong and so in 1987 they came up with
their patent EMR technology that gave battery-free pen and high-performance
product performance. Their first customers were Quantel and Sheimaselki a
textile design company to use their electromagnetic driven pen/tablet. In 1988,
they took their project to a trade show in the US using pressure technology in
combining pen and computer graphic applications. Their first application was
used by pressure paint which became very popular among various software
companies around the US. Their office is the US is in Vancouver, Washington and
for Europe, Africa and the Middle East the regional office is in Germany.
