I swear I didn’t wake up this morning thinking that today should be all about styluses – but the early portion of the day has turned out a little that way. I got two promo emails this morning, one right after the other in fact. Both about styluses. One a product that’s ready to ship soon, one a Kickstarter project looking for support.
And both quite interesting in their own way. The first one is The Architect Stylus, shown above. This one is all about the powerful combination of style and function.
Clean lines. Simple geometry. Minimalist approach. Sharp contrast. Comfortable. Practical. Smooth. Silent. All the goodness in one iconic design. Make the Architect stylus your companion today.
There’s even a promo video for The Architect that takes this architect above even George Costanza levels – and seems to guarantee that all the hot ladies will want to be with me if I show this stylus off with the right jacket.
There’s an optional (and again quite stylish looking) case for The Architect, and the stylus is said to start shipping middle of this month – priced at $22.95 as an ‘early bird price’. Check it out at its product page here:
The second stylus-related email I got turned out to be even more interesting. This one is a Kickstarter project for the Styló stylus. Here’s a little of its Kickstarter intro:
The Styló stylus attaches to the screen of the iPad 2 with two rare earth magnets, it’ll even work with the Smart Cover. No pen clip and a streamlined design that’s comfortable and practical. It’s always with your tablet. There at your convenience.
Double Tip Design
We thought about how you interact with a tablet. It’s quick and intuitive and there’s no right or wrong way. That’s why you can just pick up the Styló stylus and interact, it’s as natural as using your finger. Don’t think, just draw.
I honestly have no idea how practical (or not) the magnets are – but I think it’s a superb idea if it works, the perfect way to never worry about where or how to carry a stylus. I also quite like the double-tipped concept. Both of these strike me as very Apple-like, in a universe where Apple didn’t hate styluses.
I’d love to see the Styló get its Kickstarter funding and I made a small pledge this morning. You can check out all the details on it, and help to back it yourself at its Kickstarter page here:
