    Making a stylus - hassle free.

    I have tried to find out how to make my own stylus for the iPad but I keep coming up against the need for black conducting foam. Then I remembered that cellulose conducts a charge fairly well and decided to try using a piece of a decorator's sponge for the tip. And it works very well. This is my solution:

    Yep! But you have to take whatever tip it comes with. I find that a fat tip is a disadvantage when I'm editing music in the Notion app. The smaller tip gives me much more control.

    Making a stylus - hassle free.

    And of course there is the satisfaction of having nutted out and done something productive yourself. I think Great!

    My first stylus was my own creation. It worked great. It was a drafting pencil (without the pencil) because when button at the tip it opens up the little claws at the bottom that hold a pencil nib. I used conductive foam with a q-tip stick inside of it for stability. Worked really well. FWIW carrots work really well too. No joke.
