GoSmart, Inc. offers an innovative stylus that uses Capacitive Coupling Technology in the form of conductive wire configured like crosshairs on a coil, which allows you to see exactly where your lines are going. The wire is sturdy and bends to a range of angles to fit your writing style. On the side are two rare earth magnets, which can secure the stylus to an iPad 2 (untested) or other magnetic surface.
The stylus comes in two styles: the rocket ship shape of the 300 Series, and the more pen-like look of the 200 Series. I was pleased with the feel and weight of the metal barrel, but the choice of cap colors (red, blue, black, white) is a little “meh.” I tried it with a variety of art and note-taking apps on an original model iPad, and while my aristic skills may be lacking (below), the stylus’ performance was not.
These retail for $24.95 each and come in very attractive packaging from JustGoSmart.com.
