    No fine pointed styluses?

    To me, none of the iPad styluses are right for drawing. Some other brand touch pads and cellphone styluses have these nice fine tips on them. All the iPad ones have these big goofy ends that's like doing fine detail with a kid's crayon. Are there any fine-tipped ones for iPad?

    It is because the screen is capacitive touch and not pressure based, meaning it need a tiny electrical current ie your finger or the conductive material used in the new styluses. But I hear there is a solution being worked on in that area.

    That's good to know. Remember where you read/heard it?

    Apple did put a patent in for a stylus, so maybe on day we'll have something for drawing. Although it was patented before the iPad even came out. So who knows. I bought the box wave stylus, but just need to wait for my iPad 2 to be delivered today to test it out.

    Well I got all of my parts and got a prototype made. It works great. Needs some tweaking to see if it can get better but so far it feels great. Might need a business partner on this one

    Phew, that must be a relief, LOL

    Joking aside, I would be very interested to hear more about this - there must be lots of people who would go for a small tip stylus.

    The only problem is there is no patent for it and I have little know how on that matter. So I'm treading carefully

    Forget the patent, they are worthless unless you can afford a fortune in patent insurance. Speaking from grim experience!!!
    Get it on the market and make a killing before others step in. There's always room for more than one manufacturer, just keep yours cheapest and best!
