Staedtler Chromebook Stylus Debuts, Looks Exactly Like a Classic Pencil

By James A.

I feel that vintage writing items are coming back, as people are paying exorbitant amounts of money for typewriters, fountain pens and the works. It’s no wonder German brand Staedtler announced a special Chromebook stylus, that looks an OG pencil.

People simply want the old feeling they had in school, when they mere messing around with crayons. We already interact with tablets and laptops using fingertips and pro styli, but the classic approach never dies. You need to highlight, draw and emphasize content and this pencil may just come in handy. The Staedtler Norris Digital is the name of the accessory and it’s pencil-shaped stylus meant for Chromebooks.

It’s a digital pencil that will be available this summer and it follows the legacy of a brilliant #2 pencil brand. The device uses Wacom EMR technology to interact with Chromebooks, a tech we’ve also seen on the Samsung Galaxy Note and S Pen products. There’s no need for charging, there’s palm rejection and pressure sensitive input. There’s no battery here and the product is made from sustainable wood.

 

The Norris digital is promoted as an education tool and it’s meant for reading, writing and compatibility with Google Classroom, Jamboard, Squid and MyScript Calculator. The accessory is compatible with the following Chromebooks:

  • Acer Chromebook Tab 10
  • Acer Chromebook Spin 11 (R751T or CP311 models)
  • Acer Chromebook Spin 13 (CP713-1WN
  • Asus Chromebook Flip C213
  • CTL Chromebook NL7TW=360
  • Dell Chromebook 11 convertible (5190)
  • HP Chromebook x360 11 G1 EE
  • Lenovo 500e Chromebook
  • Samsung Chromebook Plus
  • Samsung Chromebook Pro

We don’t have a price yet, but since it’s both vintage and modern I expect a bigger than usual sum. Expect color combos like yellow and white, green and white and blue and white, plus red and white.

Apple Gets More Patents Covering iPad Pro Smart Keyboard Features

By James A.

Apple continues its huge run of receiving patents for multiple products, with today’s patent covering new features for the iPad Pro Smart Keyboard, as well as augmented reality and solar powered gadgets. We have the scoop below.

The US Patent and Trademark Office officially published a series of no less than 55 newly granted patents for Apple Inc, which cover the Apple Smart keyboard and the new features that it may receive one day. We also saw a new patent for the Mac Pro, one for AR and one for solar power energy management, in order to charge mobile devices. But what we’re most interested in is certainly the Smart Keyboard accessory.

The patent is titled “Flexible Keyboard accessory for a portable electronic device”. The document states that the accessory device may include a foldable cover, which in turn includes an attachment feature, that’s configured to couple with an electronic device. A hinge is also mentioned with the foldable cover in the mix and a rotating form factor. So, while Apple isn’t bringing out foldable phones or tablets anytime soon, at least their tablet accessories fold.

 

The keyboard assembly is also listed with a vent system, that includes an opening which provides the device with air, plus a channel coupled with the opening and to a key of the keyboard assembly. Letting a tablet and a keyboard get a vent system means that more horse power is coming to the iPad in the near future, that’s my prediction.

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Archeer Bluetooth Headphones/Speakers, 2 in 1 For A Great Price!

By Tim

We all know there are some fantastic Bluetooth headphones out there, but these offer a bonus and that is, they can also be used as speakers!

This one comes to us from Anthony over at myprojet13 on YouTube. He normally sticks to phones, but these are an accessory you can use with a phone, PC, tablet, hell, anything that does Bluetooth.

The company claims 45 hrs on a charge and they can also be plugged into a headset jack.  I could actually use these and would probably throw away my old plug-in stereo speakers in order to have the convenience of these little gizmos! Their website is right here if you want more information!

Below you will find the video!

That is all I have at this moment,

Tim

The Galaxy S9’s Dex Pad launches May 13 for $99.99

By Ron Amadeo

Hot off the launch of the Galaxy S9 last month, Samsung is about to release one of the device’s main accessories, the Samsung Dex Pad. Plug your flagship Samsung smartphone into this little dock, then plug in a monitor, mouse, and keyboard, and you’ll have a full-blown desktop OS interface powered just by your phone. Preorders are open today on Samsung.com, and the device ships May 13. Starting today, Samsung is also offering a free Dex Pad to anyone who buys a Galaxy S9 or S9+ from Samsung.com.

Samsung Dex runs the Android OS you know and love but reworked into a desktop form factor with a windowed multitasking interface. The Dex Pad requires a USB-C equipped Samsung device (so a Galaxy S8, Note 8, or S9) with Android 8.0. The dock has two USB A ports (typically for a mouse and keyboard), HDMI for the monitor, and USB-C for power. Running a desktop interface can be tough on a phone’s processor, so the Dex Pad also has a fan to help everything run a bit cooler and faster.
