This feature of the WACOM Pens and eraser senses the amount of pressure being applied. This is used to create natural-looking pen, brush, and eraser strokes in applications that support pressure-sensitivity. Even more, with 512 pressure levels in a Graphire and 1,024 pressure levels in an Intuos, you can precisely control opacity, colour, exposure, or line width while creating smooth curves and gradual transitions. Different applications take advantage of pressure sensitivity in many ways, depending on the application's capabilities.

Pressure is what good agents apply to the evolutionary process. Agent do not control what future generations will look like directly. Rather through selective pressure, they choose their favorite designs to reproduce. If a set of agents is too permissive, they will not be applying sufficient pressure to the system.
