Other interesting stylus & screen news
Speaking of styluses & touch screens, I’ve seen a few other developments worth passing along:
- Hardware maker Synaptics promises touchscreens that can detect the head of a pin.
- Noting the influx of stylus-enabled tablets coming to market, Engadget touches on the previously unannounced Adobe Journal prototype, “basically a doodler’s paradise.”
- A Qualcomm pen can transcribe ink on paper right into your phone or tablet.
- Toshiba is working to enable tactile feedback on touchscreens:
An interesting iPad stylus project on Kickstarter
Industrial designer Don Lehman’s MORE/REAL Stylus Cap “turns a Sharpie, a Bic, or a Pilot Fineliner into a touchscreen stylus that works with any capacitive touch screen. You get all the benefits of an marker that can write on paper with a stylus that gives you superior control to sketch and take notes on touchscreens such as the iPad.”
