Blue Tiger Stylus brings pressure sensitive note taking and drawing to the iPad
Thankfully, it looks like we have an upcoming reasonable solution in the form of the Blue Tiger Stylus from Ten One Design – albeit, it’s worth mentioning that it doesn’t have an official name right now. In any event, this is the item that will appeal to the likes of designers, novice drawers, and even graphics artists, because of its pressure sensitive nature.
Actually, it’s aiming to be the world’s first pressure-sensitive Bluetooth 4.0 stylus for the iPad, which so happens to also support the CoreBluetooth framework in iOS 5. In real world usage, it simply means that this will pair directly to the iPad and features specific enhancements such as palm rejection capabilities, full pressure sensitivity, and much more. Naturally, this will undoubtedly be a tool that’s perfect for those requiring more precise control in either taking notes or drawing something.
Currently, it’s still in the development stage, but developers can snag a sample unit and free downloadable SDK through their web site. Unfortunately, there is no time frame or pricing attached to the Blue Tiger Stylus right now, so in the meantime, those who are anticipating this thing will simply have to wait it out. Hey, at least it's on the horizon.

You suck at life and your father sits up every night with a gun in his mouth for the shame of sireing such an idiot.

Blue Tiger might be onto something. If they have the ability to allow a user of their stylus to use it like a pencil on a sheet of paper and have extraneous input (such as palm, wrist, etc.) not appear, that could open a new area of opportunity for interacting with tablets and handsets. I hope they have a patent application pending, cause they likely have got Apple's attention.

i know i will get a lot of thumbs down but, there are many apple fans who said stylus is so last decade..
admit it, if you are to draw, would you prefer your stubby fingers or a more precise stylus?
