Kickstarter spotlight: LunaTik Touch Pen
Nothing But Tablets is no stranger to Kickstarter projects, and I personally have spent some time exploring the many different ideas available to fund, but until today have never decided to fund one myself. That all changed when I came across the LunaTik Touch Pen Kickstarter page.
The basic idea behind the LunaTik Touch Pen is not a new one. There are many styli on the market that combine the idea of an ink pen and a stylus. None of them that I have seen have done it in a click variety. They are setup with the pen on one end, and the stylus tip on the other and you normally have to uncap the pen and turn it around in order to change writing methods. The LunaTik is designed to change instantly with a simple click that we all are well aware of with our ink pens we use everyday. The Touch Pen is also much nicer looking than a lot of styli that I have seen, especially the combo ones that have pens included. This would go awesome with the Booqpad, Tuff-Luv Scribe, or any other dual paper/touchscreen setup.
LunaTik is planning on making two separate models, one made out of aircraft aluminum and a cheaper version made of plastic for “people that tend to lose their pens often, like us.” Either model is available in a few different colors to suit your personal preferences. The estimated ship date is April of 2012, and I am anxious to see how the LunaTik Touch Pen stacks up with the rest of the stylus available on the market.[LunaTik Touch Pen on Kickstarter]
