About this project
WIRED GeekMom I've been going through a bunch of styluses lately. It turns out they mostly suck. The HAND Stylus ended up not sucking. Hooray! It's been the best iPad stylus I've tried.
Apple Gazette The results are in, and I'm calling them definitive: finally, someone has gotten the stylus just right. If you need a stylus, the HAND Stylus is the best one money can buy.
TUAW I'm going to have to apologize to the manufacturer of the stylus I used until now, because from now on I'm going to be using a HAND Stylus.
iPhoneLife I've made my contribution, and I encourage you to make yours too. What's not to like about the HAND Stylus?
Gear Diary The HAND Stylus performed beautifully!
TabTimes Using the HAND Stylus we're impressed... the 4mm tip is able to write smooth lines that are some of the finest we've seen with any stylus.
NetworkWorld The HAND Stylus looks like it will be the stylus I've wanted since I first got an iPad. It looks great, like my favorite mechanical pencils made by Rotring, the Rolls-Royce of drafting pencils.
Gentlemint The only stylus I would get.
Cult of Mac I pulled out my Wacom stylus to show John and mentioned it had a clean tip, and watched as John absent-mindedly stabbed the virgin rubber repeatedly onto the sticky bar table. If I had the HAND Stylus I needn't have suffered. The biggest feature is its retractable tip, but there's more...
Applenewsgator The HAND Stylus might be the last stylus you ever need.
In a quest to find a stylus that performs less like a blunt finger and more like the fine-tipped pens and pencils I use in my design work, I've purchased lots of styluses. Surprisingly, none of them has all the features I'd like. So I created the HAND Stylus—which sports the world's smallest tip, a mere 4mm in diameter, plus a host of other features that set it apart from all other styluses.
The slim tip is retractable, a feature found on no other rubber-tipped stylus. The exceptionally small tip provides superior precision, is easy to replace, and lasts longer than fixed tips because it rotates slightly each time it's retracted, so it wears more evenly. Again, a feature no other stylus offers. The HAND Stylus is nicely balanced, has a knurled collar for fine fingertip control, and has a removable, stainless-steel pocket clip that magnetically holds the stylus in place on an iPad's Smart Cover.
The hexagonal barrel of the HAND Stylus fits comfortably in your hand like a classic, six-sided, yellow pencil. The barrel is made from aerospace-grade anodized aluminum and comes in an array of gloss and matte colors that can be laser engraved. An engraved HAND Stylus makes a thoughtful gift or memorable advertising specialty item. Plus the pocket clip is removable.
With its small tip, the HAND Stylus works exceptionally well with touch-screen tablets for drawing and sketching, taking notes, retouching photos, accepting credit card signatures, or making presentations. It also performs well on smart phones for clicking on tiny internet links, selecting small text, and typing on diminutive keyboards. And the HAND Stylus is great for when you're wearing gloves, if you have long fingernails, or if you just like to keep your touch-screens free of fingerprints.
Six-packs of replacement tips come packaged in a handy aluminum container that you can keep at the ready in a book bag, backpack, purse, or desk drawer.
Every HAND Stylus comes packaged in a handsome tin gift box and will work well on iPads, iPhones, Android, Kindle, Nook, and Windows touch-screens.
HAND – The Mind's Cutting Edge
The HAND Stylus and its packaging are made from recycled or easily recyclable materials, plus we purchase nonprofit carbon credits to offset our use on nonrenewable energy.
