Chopstakes Multitouch Styli for iPad Released

galaxy s3 covers

Chopstakes look like Chopsticks, I’m guessing that’s where they got their name from!?  I don’t have an iPad so I’m not exactly sure why one would need two styli for it. According to the PR here, they can be used for many things like drawing, or anything where you need pinpoint accuracy. What do you think? Would you use two styli at the same time? I think you’d look kind of weird doing so, but hey if it works, why not?! They’re made of forged aluminum and come in two different sizes, pricing is  $34.95 and $44.95 for the respective sizes.

Chopstakes were designed to emulate fine writing instruments in order to enhance everyday iPad use. Chopstakes come as a pair, and are intended to be held with one in each hand simultaneously. In this way, multitouch functions and gestures can be accomplished with the styli acting in tandem. Alternately, Chopstakes can be held with both in a single hand, like chopstick utensils, in order to perform quick multitouch operations.

A forged aluminum alloy serves as the base material for Chopstakes. Each stylus is weighted to provide an optimal balance and feel in the hand. The soft rubber tips at the end of the styli are specially formulated for the iPad’s touchscreen, and are designed to perform with a high degree of accuracy and fine control for such gestures as tapping, sliding, dragging, and pinching. Each set of Chopstakes comes with a custom, semi-translucent carrying case for portability.

Two lengths of Chopstakes are available: a Type S at 6.9 inches (175mm), and a longer Type L at 9.3 inches (235mm). While the choice of length depends primarily upon preference and use, the Type L Chopstakes are long enough to double as pointing devices in teaching or presentation contexts.

Chopstakes Multitouch Styli for iPad will be available through IPEVO’s online store at http://www.ipevo.com. Everyday free shipping is available for orders of $50 or greater.
