Cosmonaut Stylus by Studio Neat
The great thing about capacitative touch screens is that no stylus is required. But if you’re using an application that involves writing or drawing, sometimes your fingers aren’t the best tools for the job. If you use such applications on a regular basis, you’ll want to invest in a good stylus.
The Cosmonaut by Studio Neat isn’t your average stylus. Most styli look and feel like an ink pen, but this one more closely resembles one of those fat crayons we used in kindergarten. Combined with its rubberized grip, this makes the Cosmonaut exceptionally easy to hold, even for children and elderly users. The solid aluminum core adds enough weight to give it a nice, natural feel. These factors also make it much more durable than its competitors.
The Cosmonaut has a broad tip that glides easily over the screen of your device. The added width makes it quite responsive without sacrificing precision.
At $25, the Cosmonaut is a great deal, and its solid construction means you won’t need to replace it anytime soon. While it’s certainly not for everyone, it’s a sound investment for those who use their iPads to take notes or draw, or anyone who frequently uses their device while wearing gloves.
