About this project
By popular demand we have added our line of T-Shirts and Hats as new Rewards! The T-Shirts are 100% cotton and come in Small, Medium, Large, and X-Large. The Hats are made from a polyester, cotton, spandex blend and come in Adult Small/Medium or Large/X-Large.
If you have already given a pledge and would like one of these awesome new rewards, simply add $10 for a T-Shirt or $15 for a Hat to your pledge. (Only applicable for D1 Stylus, D2 Stylus, and Stylex Pledges)
Stylex now comes in two sleek colors, Jet Black and Soft Pink!
From the very beginning we wanted users of Stylex to have a recognizable feel their very first time. Our goal was for it to look and weigh like any high end pen that fit comfortably in one's hand.
We knew that having a mechanical pencil in Stylex would not only be unheard of for a device like this, but it would open a whole new world. Pencils have been a part of our lives for hundreds of years, providing us with forms of expressions that pens simply cannot offer.
We have incorporated an eraser for those mistakes that don't have an "undo" button.
Welcome to the digital age! For years we have been wanting a stylus that had a "pen like" tip, durable, and most of all responsive! We have focused on this part of Stylex the most and to ensure all goals were met. No other capacitive stylus is smaller, more durable, and more responsive than Stylex.
We have pushed the limits for size at an outstanding 3.8 mm in diameter and have spent thousands of hours perfecting our stylus tip.
We will begin offering refills for the pen feature of Stylex which include: .7mm Black Ballpoint, .7mm Blue Ballpoint, .7mm Red Ballpoint, .7mm Orange Ballpoint, .3mm Black HI-TEC-C.
To add more refills to your pledge, add $5.00 per refill color ( 2 refills per color; Hi-Tec-C, 1 per refill) on top of your pledge. (Stylex Only).
- Pledge $10 or more and receive one D1 Stylus. Simple and completely reliable.
- Pledge $25 or more and receive one D2 Stylus, our 2-in-1 stylus.
We are a design and innovation company with years of experience in the field of technology and consumer electronics. We live in the current market, tested hundreds of products and have taken notes from was missing.
When Stylex began as two brass pipes glued together and our first custom stylus tip, we were thinking of you.
Always perfecting, forever innovating, and dreaming of tomorrow.
We will be manufacturing Stylex in China with companies that are certified in mass CNC machining. The body, pocket clip, and eraser cap will be made from aerospace grade aluminum to ensure the lightest weight possible. The rubber nibs will be produced in a separate factory, also located in China. Collaborations with this factory have enabled us to customized our design. We are so confident in who we working with, we have made a commitment to begin shipping Stylex by early April.
We would like to thank Richard Harris for helping us get Stylex off its feet and to where it is at today. A huge thanks to our team at Bonilla Designs for our awesome new logo and packaging design. Finally, thank you backers for your continuous support and helping our Company bring Stylex to life!
Risks and challenges
Dexterous is proud to be a part of Kickstarter and to have backers like you. This is a wonderful opportunity to show Stylex to the world. However, with great success comes great responsibility.
Our number one priority is to make a product so perfect that it will replace three writing tools. Because of the concept, design, and prototype, it will require the use of factories to produce Stylex. Fortunately, my company has been trading with manufacturers located in China, Japan, and Spain. We have multiple manufacturers in mainland China that are all certified for mass production in machining products like Stylex.
We have spent thousands of dollars to get Stylex where it is today, however it will cost more than what we alone can provide to make this idea available to the market. It will cost about 40,000 USD to make the final CAD drawing, molding, and the deposit to mass produce, package, and ship Stylex by April. As of now, we have finished the final body prototype, but we still need to do some fine tuning on the cylinder and mechanical pencil.
Our company believes in only selling products that our own members would buy. We are a team of perfectionists that build on quality and the satisfaction for all who invest in our products. We therefore welcome all feedback -- please do not hesitate to contact us with suggestions, requests, comments, or just a "hello."Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We will be selling Stylex and our other products on our online store at www.DXTRUS.com.
The D1 Stylus has a length of 4.5 inches (114.5 mm) and a width of 3/8 inch (8.9 mm). The rubber nib measures at 5.5 mm and has been completely designed by Dexterous to decrease wear and increase the touch response.
The D2 Stylus has a length of 5 inches (127.1 mm) and a width of 3/8 inch (8.9 mm). The rubber nib measures at 5.5 mm and has been completely designed by Dexterous to decrease wear and increase the touch response.
