New Stylus / Input Devices

New Stylus
New Stylus

Electronic devices usually come with a stylus, but the touch pen is too small or too short to be ergonomically used. Finger users also face an additional problem in using the fingertips: the stylus must be put down while using the fingertip. The New Stylus is designed to be mounted on the ring finger of the user and is as flexible as a cat's claw. The user could employ either the stylus tip or the fingertip for touching; when the user operates with a fingertip, the stylus tip retracts and stays until the next touch. The New Stylus realizes a perfect match, allowing the user to operate electronics with a more ergonomic touch.
