Blog . Ten One Design's Pressure Sensitive Stylus
Been looking for a way to make a pressure sensitive pen that responds like a stylus for iPads and make millions? Well, it's too late.†Ten One Design has developed†the Blue Tiger, a stylus pen made specifically for your iPad3.†Instead of using the headphones jack like other accessories, this pressure sensitive wonder is automatically detected by your iPad via Bluetooth 4.0. I know what you're thinking: "NO WAY!†How much?"†Either that, or: "Nice try, but my hand will mess up the stylus pen."†Those of you who asked the second question are very wrong. The Blue Tiger comes with software that negates the touch feature of the iPad, so nothing but the pen will be readable. It's important to note that the pressure sensitivity only works in the Blue Tiger specific app, so you won't be able to use this in your Brushes app, for example. There it would react just as a normal stylus. And to those of you who are asking in order to beg your friends and family for your next holiday gift, well, it's not on sale yet, so we don't have a price. Other companies, such as Wacom have already released stylus pens for the iPad, but they are not pressure sensitive and start right around $30. There are jokes online about how expensive Cintiqs are (over $1000), so I think that we can expect this pioneer into pressure sensitive drawing and writing will be marked in the hundreds. And there's more bad news.†The Blue Tiger is compatible with the iPad 3, but nothing is being said about the iPad2. That will be up to Ten One Design.
