A Few Videos Worth Watching: The Meko Precision 2-in-1 Stylus, Inexpensive, But Can Get the Job Done!

By Tim

If you own a smartphone, tablet or most any other touch screen device there are situations where a stylus might be handy. Obviously you can pay big bucks for one and get 1 billion levels of pressure sensitivity, (I might have exaggerated a bit),  but if you simply want a simple way to point and click and take notes, the device in the title might be for you!

We have 2 videos tonight, one from Andrew of at AMDTech and  the second one from myself, because I thought this worth sharing from my perspective. So first of all you can get this stylus at Amazon with a 20% discount using Andrew’s store link! That makes it a dirt cheap foray into the stylus market and of course that is why I am also doing a short video on it.

This product might be rather useful on my Hi12 tablet just to keep fingerprints off the screen and write some notes here and there!

So let us move on and get to those videos…first up is Andrew and make sure to subscribe to his channel for some great video content.

Next of course is my less polished review pointing out why this is such a great deal for folks that never thought of using a stylus and want some High End Cheap Tech!

That is all we have for this time, make sure to subscribe to all channels mentioned above and like and share, etc, etc.

New Apple Pencil Being Developed, According to Analyst

By Radu Iorga

Traditionally Apple unveils new tablets around Spring time, maybe March, so we may be close to a new unveiling. Or they could keep the OLED iPad Pro for the fall. What’s sure is that something is brewing and a new stylus may also be in the cards. Giving us the down low on the scoop is an analyst, after the break.

Rosenblatt Securities analyst Jun Zhang claims that Apple could be working on a brand new Apple Pencil. It’s said to go past tablets and be designed with the iPhone X Plus in mind. That device is rumored to be a 6.5 incher, so it’s on the hefty side for sure. This would make it a Galaxy Note rival and as such it needs a stylus of course. The Apple Pencil isn’t exactly ideal for smartphone use, as it’s rather big and not dockable anywhere.

Still, Apple could come up with something smaller and more stylish. The thing is that back in the days of Steve Jobs, the stylus was despised by Apple, but now they’re actually growing fond of it. Even now the Apple Pencil has some quirks, like the way it charges hooked up to the tablet in the most uncomfortable way possible. Maybe generation 2 will come with a carrying case or some other way to charge it.

Expect improved precision, long battery life and a smaller format, if it’s indeed meant for the iPhone X Plus. Otherwise, it’ll be the same size and meant for the iPad Pro 2018, with extra sensititivity.

Fresh Apple Patent Shows Stylus Able to Draw on Any Surface, Also in Mid Air

By Radu Iorga

Apple is ready to take stylus interaction to a new level, using a camera and sensors. A new patent has come up, showing the ability to perform doodles in mid air.

This stylus would work on any surface, not just a touch sensitive one. The documents mention a pen that can be monitored by a force sensor in the tip or tracked using motion and orientation sensors, or a camera. There’s also the alternative of an electromagnetic or sound based triangulation scheme.

This could mean that the computer would wirelessly monitor the stylus from multiple positions to find its location in 3D space. The pen could be used to generate text or 3D drawings, not limiting you to 2D. Drawing in mid air is actually pretty cool and sounds one step closer to Minority Report interaction.

The patent was filed back in July 2016 and published in late January. Some drawing examples are shown in the diagrams in this article. Apple already sells one stylus, dubbed Apple Pencil, but that one is limited to the iPad Pro interaction. There’s plenty of stylus action going around, with the S Pen, Moleskine Pen+ and more.

However this is the first time that drawing goes digital without a surface. We’ll see if it becomes real or not.
