Different Stylus Pens?
What are stylus Pen?
A stylus is a writing implement that works by touch or light pressure rather than ink. A stylus meant for an iPad and tablet looks more like a pen and can select options, draw or write on a touchscreen.
Some styluses are designed for writing, while others are more designed for drawing and painting. Depending on your need, you
will choose the right stylus pen for you. However, this doesn’t mean that a drawing stylus cannot write or vice versa, as long as it’s a capacitive stylus it will trigger any capacitive touchscreen and work effectively. In some circumstances, a stylus can work better for some tasks compared to others, and so not all styluses are equal. The technology built into your device’s touch screen will control what styluses you can use.
What are the Different Stylus?
Sometimes called a “fine point stylus” and it can include the use of electronics such as Bluetooth or smart electronics that can interpret movements and have a fine point stylus tip.
An active pen (also referred to as an active stylus) is an input device that includes electronic components and allows users to write directly onto the display of a computing device such as a smartphone, tablet computer or Ultra-book.
Many Companies are making Active Stylus like N-Trig, Wacom, Amtel, Synaptics are offering active pen designs.
An active pen is larger and has more features than a stylus. These pens typically contain internal electronics and have features such as touch sensitivity, input buttons, memory, writing data transmission capabilities, and electronic erasers.
How does active stylus work?
An active stylus works with a digitizer screen. The digitizer is a special sensor built into the touch screen that actively senses for a compatible stylus. Or with some styluses, you can flip the stylus around and the tablet would automatically switch to erasing mode.
Passive Stylus or Capacitive Stylus:
The cheapest, simplest type of stylus you can get is a capacitive stylus. A capacitive stylus works in the same way your finger does, distorting the screen’s electrostatic field when it touches it.
Within the Passive stylus category, you will find a rubber-tipped stylus that has rubber tips. These are your least expensive options and wear out faster because of the rubber tips fraying, smudging and becoming less accurate.
Pros & Cons:
They can work with any device that has a capacitive touch screen and most of them really don’t need batteries, they are also cheap but they are not pressure sensitive (i.e. they cannot sense how hard you’re pressing the screen) also they don’t offer palm rejection (i.e. you can’t rest your hand on the screen while using a stylus).
