So, among my illustrator friends there has been talk about this Kickstarter project that is developing a pressure-sensitive stylus for the iPad: jaja :: Worlds First Pressure Sensitive Stylus for iPad by Jon Atherton — Kickstarter I am not an iPad owner, as I swore I wouldn't buy one until someone offered a decent pressure-sensitive stylus for the platform, but if this pans out (i.e., gets Alias/Autodesk app support for its functionality) I may finally pony up for the slate. They're making some enticing promises: 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity, long battery life, out-of-the-box compatibility ProCreate with (Savage Interactive - Procreate) software. However there seem to be a few caveats: as it is essentially an enhanced capacitive stylus, it needs to work with the "minimal area of contact" limitation inherent of the technology (please correct me if I'm wrong), so it has one of those funky loop-shaped tips. The other may not be a 'caveat' per se, though a point of which I am a little skeptical. Rather than transmitting the pressure data via BlueTooth, the Jaja promises better battery life by using high frequency sound transmission that is received by the iPad's microphone. This -seems- like it would be susceptible to interference, but I'm not a sound tech. or electrician, or even very bright in general, so I may be completely wrong. I'm just wondering if the pressure sensitivity would suffer any inconsistencies due to the technology implemented here. Thoughts? I definitely won't shell out for an iPad and prepurchase one of these styluses as I would rather wait for the early adopter bugs to be worked out. Though, at the same time, who knows if production of this product will go beyond the initial Kickstarter release?
