iPhone owners in South Korea are using a stick of meat as a stylus
Call it a bit uncanny, but some iPhone owners in South Korea were spotted using a link of packaged sausages that acted as a stylus for their smartphone. Unlike its resistive touchscreen counterparts, the capacitive one used on the iPhone will only register a heat source touching the screen. In an attempt to see if it would work, it looks like sausages are a close match for the actual human finger – which surprisingly works well as a stylus for the venerable smartphone. One company is seemingly making a profit by this unorthodox method – sales of CJ Corporation's snack sausage have been increasing in South Korea because of the cold weather. People are gobbling them up to act as a stylus for those who prefer keeping their gloves on in the frigid weather. And of course the best part of it all is the special treat you can savor when you're done using your phone.
