Check Out This Awesome New Kickstarter-Funded iPad Stylus

By

As if there weren’t enough capacitive styli out there for the iPad, here’s another one from Kickstarter success Adonit (who make the Adonit Writer we previewed here in a Kickstarter Macworld story — review coming soon) called the Jot. Ah, but this one’s different.

The $18 Kickstarted Jot employs a flat disk attached, via ball-and-socket, to a fine point at the end of the stylus. The upshot is finer control, more like a pen, but unlike a pen, the ability to write at more extreme angles.

Looks pretty cool, and Adonit are set to release it in August. $25 For those of you who drive Beemers Bimmers, there’s also the upscale Jot Pro at $30, with a more austere finish, rubberized grip and magnet so it can cling to your iPad. A $25 pledge will get you two Jots or one Pro

    Beemers are ridden.

    Bimmers are driven.

    Bah.  Capacitive “styluses” are just fake fingers. A sausage would do as well.  

    Wake me up when there is a real stylus for iOS.

    Thank god someone actually understands the difference. Bravo!

    Nice!  Looks much better than some of the other ones I’ve worked with.  Their design decisions are also very intelligently made. I like that the Pro will stick to your iPad 2 near the top using the existing magnets used for the smart covers.

    Isn’t that rather common knowledge for what used to be called a yuppie?

    I’m a biotechnology senior at the university. I use the ipad and it taken over as my main computer. If I wanted to make an article for college bound or present students. I am not looking to get paid just spread some information.

    Or someone who rides a Beemer every day. Cheers, mate.
