Introduction: Capacitive Stylus
This is a capacitive stylus you can use on non-ERM-digitized smartphones and tablets.
You will need a fully metallic ballpoint pen casing, a Q-Tip and a smartphone/tablet (a screen protector is strongly advised).
- Metal ballpoint pen casing
- Tablet/smartphone with protective foil
Step 1: Put It Together
Unscrew the ballpoint pen and insert the Q-tip. Push the cotton tip against the opening for the mine until it sits steady.
Step 2: Dip Into Water
Put the pen back together with the Q-tip inside. You need to keep the cotton wet, so dip the stylus every few minutes.
Step 3: Start Sketching
Install a Drawing app (like MediBang) and sketch with your new stylus. Dip it from time to time in water. Be careful to not scratch your screen, the Q-tip can loosen, and then the metal of the pen casing will come into contact with your phone.
