‘iPen 2’ by cregle



based in virginia, sam jang, founder of cregle has developed the ‘iPen 2’, a follow-up to the successful kickstarter predecessor, the ‘iPen’.  conceived with a completely new design and technology from inside and out, the stylus implements the special ability to perform tasks on laptop and iMac computer screens running iOS as well as iPads using special digital receiversmounted to the corners of the glass displays.


providing up to 1024 pressure levels, its new mechanical configuration makes it easy to draw using accurate pressure strokes, and because it emits a signal from the very tiny pen tip, it gives users the same writing accuracy regardless of what angle the ‘iPen 2’ is being held. using lightweight inking, the stylus emulates the comfort and nature writing of ballpoint pen, taking 75% less weight to generate strokes on the display.


the ‘ipen 2’ is currently seeking funding on kickstarter.
