One of the things newcomers to technology find confusing is how different the digital universe is from the analog one. Mice don’t look like meeces, keyboards are very counter-intuitive and styli seldom feel as comfortable as a standard pen.
Say hello to the Pencil product. Made from harvested wood or solid black aluminum this is not your average stylus. For one thing it’s powered, and links via Bluetooth, which means lots of clever stuff. Like an eraser for one. Plus the ability to differentiate between your palm resting on the tablet and the stylus at work, as long as you’re working in the Paper app.
The battery lasts for a month of average use and is USB rechargeable in 90 minutes, and although you’ll need to use Paper to get the fancy erase and palm rejection functions, the stylus will work with other apps and devices as a standard tool. Pencil is priced at $49.95.
