iPen First Active Stylus for iPad

iPen, developed by Cregle Inc. and advertised as the first active stylus for the iPad, will allow users to write on the iPad as though they were using a high-quality ball-point pen. The iPen is totally different to any iPad stylus available today. The Cregle iPen transforms the iPad into a content creation device, not just a content consumption device. iPen is the first active digitizer stylus that allows you to write with precision directly on the iPad. Unlike the passive digitizer used in the typical iPad stylus, iPen writes like a real pen with accurate positioning and palm rejection features that passive products simply cannot achieve. With the Cregle iPen‚ Äôs active digitizer, the attached receiver picks up the iPen‚ Äôs signal and its precise position as  it  hovers above the screen.

This crucial advantage allows iPen to actively transmit 60 samples per second to pinpoint the pen‚ Äôs exact location. The fund goal was achieved through pre-orders and early backers in Kickstarter funding blowing its required $35,000 goal with pledges totalling a massive $162,000. The iPen should retail for around $89 when it will be in stores.
