HAND Stylus by Steve King — Kickstarter

Most of you know I am a huge fan of Kickstarter because I understand that we have some very creative people out here that have great ideas and without a platform like this, the products may never make it to market. Additionally, I believe strongly in people keeping 100% ownership of their ideas without Sharks and Venture Capital bleeding them of their rewards. There is a great need for those avenues too, but they shouldn't be the only road available for people. What better way to raise capital for your idea than to get customers to say "I'll pay now so you can build it for me and the market". 

Many of you have expressed interest in researching or buying a stylus for your iPhone and/or iPad. Here is an interesting idea that may appeal to some of you. The project is called Hand Stylus and it has already well surpassed it's goal and therefore will get funded. The pledge drive ends June 17, 2012. The pledges start at $25 and some upgrades includes a set of tip replacements and/of laser engraving. There is a few color options as well. 

The $25 starting price is $5 less than what the product will retail for once it comes to market. 

In a quest to find a stylus that performs less like a blunt finger and more like the fine-tipped pens and pencils I use in my design work, I've purchased lots of styluses. Surprisingly, none of them has all the features I'd like. So I created the HAND Stylus—which sports the world's smallest tip, a mere 4mm in diameter, plus a host of other features that set it apart from all other styluses.

The slim tip is retractable, a feature found on no other rubber-tipped stylus. The exceptionally small tip provides superior precision, is easy to replace, and lasts longer than fixed tips because it rotates slightly each time it's retracted, so it wears more evenly. Again, a feature no other stylus offers. The HAND Stylus is nicely balanced, has a knurled collar for fine fingertip control, and has a removable, stainless-steel pocket clip that magnetically holds the stylus in place on an iPad's Smart Cover.

With its small tip, the HAND Stylus works exceptionally well with touch-screen tablets for drawing and sketching, taking notes, retouching photos, accepting credit card signatures, or making presentations. It also performs well on smart phones for clicking on tiny internet links, selecting small text, and typing on diminutive keyboards. And the HAND Stylus is great for when you're wearing gloves, if you have long fingernails, or if you just like to keep your touch-screens free of fingerprints.

Six-packs of replacement tips come packaged in a handy aluminum container that you can keep at the ready in a book bag, backpack, purse, or desk drawer.

Every HAND Stylus comes packaged in a handsome tin gift box and will work well on iPads, iPhones, Android, Kindle, Nook, and Windows touch-screens.
