Scribbly, the permanent marker-shaped stylus

It had to happen. It’s a well known fact by now that large styli works rather well on capacitive screens because the accuracy of such a stylus is a lot more like a permanent marker than a pen. That’s why the AluPen looks like it does, that’s why I DIYed something similar, and that’s why this Kickstarter project was started. It was therefore inevitable that someone made a stylus that wasn’t just the same size as a permanent marker, but pretty much duplicates the shape altogether.

The Scribbly as it’s called is a UK invention that will retail for £10, making it cheap enough that I’m pretty sure it won’t have much of a chance compared to the more expensive styli out there as far as accuracy goes. It might surprise us though, and for kids it’s certainly an option.
