Stylus to use with tablets & smartphones instead of your finger.

Yea but doesn't the heat from fingers activate the censors?

My Droid won't work with a stylus, but I've seen other phones that do.

The kit comes with a plastic "headphone" jack on the lanyard.
A better look

They also have a "wallstreet" style pen, with a stylus on the opposite end as the writing tip.

The stylus have a capacitive silicone tip for a soft responsive touch. It works on my wife's iphone. It also works on my ipod. It works on my kids tablets & their smart phones. Also works on my HTC Evo. I make them with the acrylics. Maybe that makes a difference.

I made these... I used a longer barrel on one of them. They are standard 7mm barrels the one in the stubby kit is 1 3/4" long. My hands are way to big so I used 1 barrel out of a slimline kit for the extra length.

Oh that's good to know. I tried a stylus from something (can't remember where it came from) that didn't work, but I think it was just solid plastic. I don't think it had the fancy silicone tip.

Looks good by the way!

The small stylus that has the hard plastic tip that is used with a pda or Palm Pilot type of devise is different.
