Amazing Anodizing!

I just finished watching a video on Gizmodo that does a great job of explaining how anodized aluminum colors are created and why this electro-chemical process is so amazing! The HAND Stylus' colors are achieved by using anodized aluminum. Apple loves anodized aluminum, I love anodized aluminum, and you're likely to too after you watch the video. Enjoy! Steve King

      Great info for how the stylus is made!

      I love little updates like this, helps me connect more with the person behind the project. Also, Anodizing IS cool, and should be shared.

      Love every single update, keep 'em coming Steve!!! Thanks!!!

      I like the updates. Apple doesn't have purple either. Wonder if that is because of the aluminum?

      I disagree with Kris, Steve, keep posting these kinds of updates because some of us do like them.

      You shouldn't tell someone how to run their kickstarter campaign. Just adjust your settings

      Love this update! Thanks!
      @Kris - You can turn off update notifications in your settings. You'll get every info when the project will be funded. Meanwhile, you can turn it off.

      I appreciate your enthusiasm but would like to ask a favor. Could you please only post updates here that are specific to the Stylus and it's production. I get a LOT of email and want updates as to the timing and delivery of my Stylus without having to wade through things like this PSA. Sorry if I sound snippy I am not trying to.
