Adobe is venturing into unfamiliar territory with the announcement of its Napoleon digital ruler and Project Mighty stylus at its annual MAX conference today.

The company’s Project Mighty is a stylus that connects to an iPad or iPhone via Bluetooth and is well integrated with Adobe’s existing creative suite and cloud service. The pen is pressure sensitive and takes advantage of non-stylus touch allowing users to erase with their free hand.

The pen features an LED on the back that displays different colours depending on what a user is doing with it. There’s also a button on the pen which brings up tools on the screen or other resources saved on a user’s creative cloud.

The Napoleon on the other hand is a digital ruler that works hand in hand with the Project Mighty stylus. The ruler looks a lot like a fingerboard and features two touch points (feet) on its underside to give the tablet its orientation.

With the Napoleon, a user can draw straight lines that snap to the horizontal and vertical following the edge of the ruler. Curves can also be made more accurately with the Napoleon.

Both the Mighty and the Napoleon are still in the development phase but Adobe said that they plan to make both products materialise sometime in the future.
