Ten One Design Announces Pressure-Sensitive Stylus for iPad

Posted by at 12:59 am on March 6, 2012

Ten One design has unveiled a prototype of a pressure-sensitive stylus for iPads in hopes that it would be an ideal fit for the next iPad. The writing implement, codenamed “Blue Tiger,” that uses Bluetooth 4.0 to automatically connect to the iPad. The app that drives the stylus has embedded palm rejection, which prevents anything but the pen itself from being used to input information.

The pen offers a choice of switchable LED colors. A small coin battery provides up to one-year of battery life. Ten One Design hasn’t announced pricing, availability or even a name. The stylus must still go through FCC approval with its final design, and the company has acknowledged that the hardware won’t be productized unless it receives sufficient developer support with other apps.

Styluses have been common after-the-fact accessories for the iPad, but the capacitive screen and lack of advanced pen support has discouraged pressure sensitivity.
