Bauhaus Software Inc. today unveiled Mirage Nomad, a new, breakthrough tablet PC-based animation and storyboarding system for 2D artists. Combining the power of the Motion Computing LE1600 Tablet PC with Mirage, Bauhaus Softwares industry-leading paperless 2D animation system, Mirage Nomad frees artists to draw, paint and animate anywhere their lives may take them. From storyboards and pencil tests, to fully-colored final animation and special effects, Mirage Nomad is a powerful, portable 2D animation studio that easily fits in a backpack.

The clipboard-sized Mirage Nomad is based on the award-winning Motion LE1600 Tablet PC, weighing only 3.1 pounds and featuring a Low Voltage (LV) Intel Pentium M processor running at 1.5GHz. Mirage Nomad includes 1GB upgradeable RAM, a 30GB upgradeable hard drive (shock-mounted for enhanced durability), the View Anywhere display and WiFi connectivity. Combining the Motion LE1600 with Mirage enables artists to create any classical or digital style of 2D animation from cel animation and anime, to rotoscoping, cut out animation, and more.

?Mirage Nomad ushers in a whole new era of opportunity for 2D animators, said Dan Kraus, CEO of Bauhaus Software. ?Now, rather than being constrained to a desk or a light table, animators can work anywhere and have studio-quality tools at their fingertips.

"The LE1600 is great for creative industries like 2D animation that need pressure-sensitive digitized pen input, said Valerie Walden, Motion Computing vice president of marketing. ?The LE1600s computing power and large, bright 12.1 display provides Mirage Nomad users with a workstation-class system they can take anywhere.

Bauhaus Mirage software is a powerful, creative environment for the production of 2D animation and special effects. Designed for professional studios and freelancers requiring a maximum level of flexibility and productivity, Mirage combines real-time paint, animation and special effects functionalities into a single product. A true paperless digital animation system, Mirage dramatically broadens the capabilities of traditional 2D animators, and is proven to save up to 50% in production time compared with traditional 2D pipelines.

Pricing and Availability
The Mirage Nomad is available immediately through the Bauhaus Web site (, Complete Tablet Solutions (, and CTS-authorized resellers at a suggested MSRP of $2,995 (USD). Further information on the Mirage Nomad system can be found at
