Introduction: Simple Clean Graphite Ipad Stylus
This is my very first instructables,
And for starters i decided do make the same thing everyone, at least once in life, does, a Tablet Stylus Tutorial!
Every time i see one of those i get myself thinking of how complicated it is to build one with foam and foil and stuff. Also how crappy are the ones they sell around, with that rubber tip that doesnt move in a fluid way and leave rubber marks in your screen.
So i had an idea, a really simple one, that in the end become a cheap, fluid, simple, clean, functional and elegant Stylus.
This is an early stage idea and although it is working really well for me, there are some things i cant tell for sure, like if the graphite is able to anyhow damage the screen, and stuff like that. So, if you dont know also, try it, but be smart. If you know, please, comment below.
Step 1: Materials
For this project you'll need
Graphite Sticks (non wood) (Sometimes called charcoal pencil)
Sandpaper (in my case one of those nail sanding sticks)
Step 2: Making
The point here is:
The graphite by itself will be recognised by the capacitive screen, as long as it has enought surface area.
So basically i sanded the back part of the stick in an angle so i could touch the screen with a flat area in a confortable hand position, and thats it!
It doesnt leave any graphite in my hands nor in the glass.
It is cheap. It is made of one single piece. And so on.
Anyway, thanks for reading it all and i hope to see your critics below!
