    Basically the Surface Equivalent to the Mac Mini or the Intel NUC Hades Canyon. But given Microsoft's reluctance to go anywhere near Thunderbolt 3, I'd feel that product would be at a sever disadvantage.

    That diagonal jitter looks HUGE.... You can't expect 32" digitizer to be dense as smaller ones but jeez...

    But if its using reverse engineered EMR, a dense capacitive touch Digitizer Grid shouldn't matter as much for pen performance as it would for an ES based pen system like the Surface Pen in the Studio. (Multitouch is another story).

    And any precievable jitter from the video could just be from the video. If it was truly that bad, I'd like to think Lisa would have noticed or commented on it. And that giant sharpie stick is only a prototype pen....provided they do have a more practical pen for the proper release.....issues like that could be ironed out.

    You don't use battery in a pen for EMR. Don't get excited just because she said UC Logic. That just mean they use their pressure sensor assembly in the pen.

    Good eye. So I looked up eGalax and unfortunately, it looks like they specialize in capacitive and resistive digitizers. Frig. :(

    Still, I've messaged the creator on Kickstarter for more details about the pen tech. I'll update if they respond.

    Quantum Unicorns.

    They're out there. They really, really are. You know it in your soul!

    But if you try to measure them, even just look in their general direction.., Poof! They turn into donkeys.

    Dang, that looked worse than my Yiynova MVP20. And that pen looked like a whiteboard marker and is not similar to Yiynova pen at all.

    This remind me of the sausage pen of the 20" Panasonic toughtpad back in 2013

    Ugh, this is so disappointing.

    Too good to be true I suppose.
