Regular monitors emit some amount of EMF, but I can put some distance between them and my body.
But, in order to use pen displays like wacom cintiq, I have to be closer to it.
Wacom Cintiq uses electromagnetic resonance to provide power to its pen and communicate with it.
It emits quite a bit of electromagnetic radiation in some frequencies my portable AM radio can pick up.
Because of this, I'm thinking about either finding a low-EMF pen display or ditching career as a digital artist.
I have found two alternatives.
- Lenovo Flex 5 laptop has a monitor that can be used with Wacom AES(active electrostatic) pens like wacom bamboo ink.
- Lenovo Thinkvision M14t is a USB-C pen display which uses an active pen. It's going to be released soon.
Active pens require batteries because they don't communicate with monitor through electromagnetic radiation. Active electrostatic pens don't require electromagnetic radiation.
I will still have to shield my drawing arm from some EMF from those devices by wearing an RF-blocking glove and an RF-blocking sleeve. Does anyone know better options?
