    I made a video on how to make a stylus like to pogo.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hzTHbiGNUQ]YouTube - How to Make a Pogo Stylus Clone for your iPhone, iPad, etc.[/ame]

    Just head on down to radio shack and buy a IC chip with the static foam.

    Hey, did you guys take a look at the surrounding tubes at the end of that demo?

    The accelerated drawings were great!:D:D:D

    Ipad stylus

    for something worth big buck, i totally agree with you everyone have his own choice and taste right ??, like my carbon fiber case i spend lot of time for do one but for stylus cost less than 10 i don’t think i need to spend 3 hours (of course is my point of view)

    He not spend 3 hour like you say. I watch a he video with my time clock. He make a pogo stylus less then 2 Minutes (not hours like you say) and he do this real cheap. He make nice pogo stylus I bet he sell for $5 if he wants.
    I found me some foam like he, and I going to make pogo stylus like he but I think it take me 3 minutes because he better pogo stylus maker then me.. I like his post because he teach me something good to have :p
