Zeppelin Stylus launches on KickStarter

Demand precision? This may be the stylus you’ve been searching for

Current capacitive stylus options range from conductive chunky rubber offerings to coated translucent plastic ones. While these may offer improvements over our traditional fleshy digits, they still obstruct our view of the screen.

Inventor Jae Son hopes to rectify this problem with the chic-looking Zeppelin stylus, which uses concentric rings to act as a solid conductive surface with less obstruction, meaning that you can see more of the screen – a handy benefit for fans of tablet sketching.

Made from aerospace-grade aluminium with built-in magnets to clip on to your iPad 2, the fancy stylus is up on KickStarter where it awaits becoming a reality courtesy of your generous funding.
