I will show you how to make a super simple and sensitive ipad pencil that is free to make.
Step 1: Materials
- 1 piece of cloth
- 1 pen with one side that's rounded
- solder (or wire)
Step 2: Cut Your Cloth
Cut your cloth into a 3" by 6" rectangle. After that, fold it in half, so you get a 3" by 3" square.
Step 3: Wind Your Solder
If you are using wire, use wire strippers to remove all of the insulation.
After that, place the cloth on the tip of the pen, and wind it around so that the tip is covered, with some cloth dangling off of the end. After that, take the solder, and wind it around, starting from the tip. Make sure that it doesn't unwind.
Step 4: Use It!
Wet the tip, and hold the pen as you normally would. You can now write on any capacative touchscreen! It also double functions as a pen.
