Pogo Sketch stylus debuts
Ten One Design has uncovered the Pogo Sketch, a new control stylus built on capacitive touch technology. Like its predecessor, the Pogo Stylus, this means that the Sketch can be used with iPhones and iPod touches, substituting for fingers. The Sketch expands functionality to MacBooks, however, where it interacts with multi-touch trackpads instead of a display.
The stylus is built out of aluminum, and sports a pocket clip to compensate for the lack of a holder on Apple's hardware. The tip of the device has been deliberately engineered to be small, meanwhile, for the sake of hitting links and smaller buttons. Ten One is not currently shipping the Sketch, but is taking pre-orders at a cost of $15 per pen.
