This is dirt cheap to make a stylus and works great. The reason this works is iPod screens detect the electrons coming off your fingers so the tinfoil part of this project acts as a conductor for the electrons so the screen can detect the stylus touching the screen.
Step 1: What you need
- a Pen
- Cloth or an ear plug (optional)
Step 2: Step 1
cut out about a 2 inch square of tinfoil
Step 3: Step 2
Cover the end of the pen with tinfoil and tape it on but leave a tab of tinfoil UN-taped to act as the conductor
(optional)- You can put thin cloth over the tip to make it slide easier
Step 4: How to use
The way to use it is to put your finger on the tab of untapped tinfoil and touch the screen with the tinfoil tip
Tip: if you put cloth over it and its not working it is probably because the cloth is too thick so the electrons cant get to the screen so either take it off and use a thinner cloth or just take it off and use it plain.
