Touchscreen technology is great, but if you want to draw something or write accurately and not spend 25 dollars, this instructable is for you!
This stylus works very well, has a comfortable grip, and costs less and a dollar to make (it's made entirely of trash)!
Step 1: How to Make It
Materials: Empty toilet paper roll, scissors, tape, chip bag that is shiny inside out
Cut a line straight down the toilet paper roll.
Cut another line straight down about 2cm away and throw the larger paper away.
Fold into 3 parts
Fold so that the smaller folded place touches where you want the end of the third part to be
Cut where it met!
. . . And tape!
Cut the chip bag so that it is as tall as the toilet paper roll and wide enough to cover the whole thing.
Cut out a strip about the size shown above in picture 9
Tape the smaller strip onto one end of the toilet paper roll and make sure there is extra.
Tape the larger one on and wrap the whole thing
Optional: cover it in something colorful or decorate it to make it look neat.
Step 2: How It Works
How does it work?
To know that, you first need to know how a touchscreen works.
The iPad responds to your finger because there is a tiny amount of electricity in your finger.
So, we need to make the stylus soft and able to conduct electricity. Like a finger.
The chip bag conducts electricity and the tip of the stylus is soft like a finger.
The decoration is covering the chip bag, but it's very thin, so the stylus still works.
Step 3: Use It
The stylus is easy to use and it's three sides makes it comfortable to grip. You can use it to take notes, draw something, or label something.
