FiftyThree, the company that developed the wonderful Paper drawing/painting app (free with in-app purchases), also created a companion stylus that they naturally gave the name Pencil to. The stylus, which looks like a carpenter's pencil but has some amazing technology built into it, sells for US$49.95 for a graphite version and $59.95 in a beautiful walnut version. Up until now, Pencil was only available through the FiftyThree website and on Amazon, but the company has announced that the stylish and versatile Pencil is now available at the brick-and-mortar and online Apple Stores.
TUAW will be reviewing Pencil by FiftyThree in the near future; in the meanwhile you can check out the details of the cool piece of hardware here. What I want to try the most is the adaptive palm rejection, which allows your palm or other bits of your hand to be resting on the screen while drawing or writing. Other stylus manufacturers have tried -- and most have failed -- to produce workable palm rejection, so we'll be sure to put it to the test. Read | Permalink | Email this | Comments
