I was both interested by the way a capacitive display works, and amazed by the prices some manufacturers ask for an iPad stylus.
I really told myself :"Something that simple should not cost that much!!"
I was in the look of something soft and conductive until i came upon these conductive foam bits you find in computers.
Thanks to the long body, this stylus really feels like a paintbrush and i really enjoy doodling with it and the " 53 " app!

Step 1: stuff you'll need.

You are going to be needing :
- conductive foams
- Bamboo chopsticks from your last takeout meal.
- Threaded copper wire
- Crazy glue
Make an instructable on where in the comp to find the phone please
You will find the foams in any old imac or macbook pro, i found mine in a broken 2009 iMac
<p>any other places to find the conductive foam? i checked a couple electronic parts shipments and that material was not conductive, all aapple stuff i have is still working</p>
made it, love it! perfect for left handed tablet artists! lol!
I am really glad you made it! It's so hard to find ambidextrous stylus these days :D
