Microsoft wants to have a new universal pen for Windows 10, one that would work on any device running the popular operating system. It would support the software giant’s new initiative called Windows Ink.

From what Microsoft had to say, Windows Ink aims to make the pen an integral part of the Windows experience. With this as its goal, Windows 10 will now require a powerful tool to bring the experience to life in the best possible way, which is why Microsoft has decided to partner with Wacom to make it happen.

Both companies will work together to create a universal stylus that will work on any Windows 10 device with a touchscreen. It’s a long shot but if it works, then Microsoft would be moving in the right direction.

Both companies have worked together in the past: the Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2 relied on a pen designed and produced by Wacom. However, when it came down to the Surface Pro 4, Microsoft decided to work with N-Trig instead. We’re not sure if there was a falling out between Microsoft and N-Trig, although we do find it strange that Wacom managed to get a hold of this deal.

We have to wonder if this universal pen will also work on non-Windows devices such as the iPad Pro or even some Android tablets. While we suspect it might, it’s safe to say optimal performance will only be achieved when paired with a Windows 10 computer.
