Flip! The World’s Most Intuitive Smart Stylus

The World's Most Intuitive Smart Stylus

Flip works just like the pencil you grew up with. 

With Flip, you don't have to worry about charging your stylus or connecting to your tablet to unlock the features like flip to erase and palm rejection. Flip knows what you want it to do without using batteries or Bluetooth. It’s intuitive, easy to use, and gives you all the features and benefits of an active stylus without the complexity.

 

 

Want to erase? Flip knows. Just flip it over, and your stylus is now an eraser.

 

Flip is also a very powerful tool that both professional and amateur digital artists will love. With Flip's interchangeable magnetic tips, the artist in you will be inspired to draw, sketch, and paint in all your favorite apps.

 

 

Want to rest your palm on the screen while using the stylus? Flip knows. Since we know the exact location of the stylus, we can perfectly reject any other object touching the screen.

 

Want to hover and then zoom in to generate more detail? Flip knows. Just enable the hover functionality, and we can even detect the stylus while it is still in the air.

 

Want to take notes in a class or meeting but don't want to re-enter your password and reconnect your Bluetooth stylus every time your iPad wakes up again? Flip knows. We sense when you stop writing, automatically dim your screen to help save power, and instantly turn your screen back on when you reach to make your next note.

Flip uses an incredibly simple and unique method of communication with any iOS device so you can write on your iPhone or iPad just like you would with a pen and paper.

In the past, advanced smart stylus features like flip to erase, palm rejection, and others have required complex electronics. To improve upon this, we've powered Flip with magnets.

Our rare earth magnets produce an exact invisible magnetic field that is always on, just like the earth's magnetic field.

Bluetooth-Free and Battery-Free

Flip's patented software algorithms, developed by our software partner Widevantage, use the hardware already in your device to sense and detect Flip's magnetic field and determine the precise location and orientation of the stylus, so our palm rejection, flip to erase and other features work perfectly without ever needing Bluetooth or batteries.

 

Flip comes with a free, easy to use note taking and drawing app called Flip Notes.

We also know many of our backers already have their favorite apps, so we've developed an app developer's kit that allows any note taking or drawing app to quickly integrate Flip's features into their software.

Apps we are currently working with include:

Apps we plan to work with include:

We are happy to keep adding to the list - just let us know your favorite app, and we will work with them!

Risks and challenges

Having successfully launched two Kickstarter projects before, we are aware that there are always certain risks associated with bringing a new product to market. However, we have plenty of experience on how to manufacture high quality products, work through shipping regulations and certifications, and handle fulfilling lots of orders.

We have a long time relationship with our manufacturers and are very confident in their abilities to deliver quality products. That being said, when manufacturing goods, there is always a chance we may experience production delays due to tooling, volume, QA, supply chain, Customs, shipping regulations, etc. We have done our best to plan for things like this in our timeline, but if something happens and our production schedule gets delayed, we will be sure to keep you, our backers, in the loop with what is going on. Whatever unforeseen challenges we may encounter, we are confident that we have the necessary skills to problem solve along the way.

Our team is very committed to being open and transparent with all of our backers if any bump in the road should occur, and we will work hard to deliver what we promise. We will respond to our backer's comments and questions, as well as post frequent updates to keep you up to date and excited about the project ahead.
