Touch screen is now a very common type of application in computer technology. This great revolution has turned the era of keyboards into a humanize technique. You can feel free to click on every icon via fingertips, and slide all over the touch screens to browse your files or surf the internet. It is designed to withstand a wide range of environmental conditions and can be panel mounted, pedestal mounted or handheld. But how well do you know about the capacitive stylus?
Except for using the fingers, there is another technique that makes you even more convenient with touchscreens, that is, human machine interfaces, or usually called a stylus. The word stylus refers to the word “style”, which originated from the Latin word “stilus”, meaning a pointed instrument for writing upon wax tablets in ancient Rome. The small tool can be used in many fields, for example, the computing system, art, music recording and scientific instrument. In the music recording industry, we call it as gramophone needle while in computing, we called it as stylus pen.
Today, the user operates a touchscreen with a stylus, rather than using a finger, which avoids getting the natural oil from one's hands on the screen. It also improves the precision of the touch input, allowing use of smaller user interface elements. The capacitive stylus may be used for handwriting or drawing on the touch-sensitive surface. Just like one of the most popular app games on the smart phones, Draw Something, you will need a good "pen" to draw if you want to make your drawing more alike to the keyword.
With the help of this narrow elongated staff, all of the works can be so precisely finished. The idea of the capacitive stylus comes from a ballpoint pen, so you can control every movement to exactly where you want it to be. Lots of stylus pen are curved to be held more easily, and some of them even embedded with shinning diamonds.
