Most of you probably know the iPad 2 was announced today (I won’t make any judgments on that low res screen), and that Apple are pushing their own “magic covers” & accessories, but what Apple haven’t come up yet is a good stylus.
Maybe because they keep thinking the iPad should only be used with our greasy fingers. And the number of “cool” accessories for the iPad has grown at the same exponential speed as for any other Apple product. If last January we were talking about the Nomad Brush (still patent pending?), yesterday we came across one of those Kickstarter projects that it’s a success from the start: The “More/Real stylus cap“.
Which is still a project, but as it’s already been funded we know it will be produced & being delivered starting next month. I think Don Lehman (the industrial designer behind the project) can explain the idea way better than us…
Basically: a high-quality cap that turns a Sharpie, a Bic, or a Pilot Fineliner into a touchscreen stylus that works with any capacitive touch screen (so … not only for iPad we assume!). The project is still accepting supporters and for 20$ and on you get at least 1 cap, so no excuses for not supporting! (if you’re into caps obviously).
