Thanks Charles! The projected date is before the end of the month of November. The features are that it's the only stylus to work on capacitive touch screens that is made of wood. It has 0 drag so it easily glides over the surface of your screen. The front tip works from 40 to 160 degree angle. The back tip works from 0 to 40 degree angle. And finally we figured out a cool way for it to still work even if you have gloves on.

This is our baby step into making our electronic stylus. We'll be posting up more pics and videos in the following days, when we do I'll post the links here.

Outstanding!!!

Will this work on current technology or new models only? I'm about to purchase a iPad and I want to make sure I can utilize this fully!

Congrats!!

Thank you for the kind words :]

This definitely works great on all the iPhone models, iPod touch models and the iPad. I'm not to sure how well it works on android devices. Once I get my hands on one I'll update our compatibility list. We posted some quick sketches on our blog (http://plai.tv/blog.php?id=23&p=&search=) using e.stylo:

I'll update with more info as it comes out, thanks again!
