Review: Cosmonaut pen for iPad
 
http://www.mac-forums.com/blog/wp-co...09-257x300.jpg

The Cosmonaut is a capacitive stylus that was launched to much hype last Spring on Kickstarter. Created by the same guys that made the Glif tripod adapter for the iPhone, the Cosmonaut suffered a few shipping delays before arriving in the hands of backers this winter. Its creat... ...

Nice review Aptmunich, quick and to the point giving a good feel for what to expect. How do you like the fit in your hand? It looks as though it could feel a bit like one of those fat crayola crayons we used as kids, but hard to judge from the pictures.

Thanks!

Yeah, it definitely has a dry-marker / crayola feel to it. I think they actually mention somewhere that they were specifically going for that type of feel.

It feels great in the hand!

how do you store it when not in use?
 
is there any way of attaching it to say a keyring?!? (like the 'ligature' in the Glif+)

Well it does look like an oversized crayon. >_>"

No, there's no way to attach anything and it's a little big for a keyring really.

Doing actual "art" on my iPad2
 
I've been using a Dagi stylus with great results. I've loaded several drawing apps, including iDraw, SketchbookPro, and ArtRage, and have been able to do some pretty impressive illustrations with the Dagi. I also use it for taking notes in Penultimate, and since the Dagi feels more like a "real" pen/pencil, its much more natural for writing or drawing. This stylus seems very bulky and a bit cumbersome (although that may be great for those with arthritis or other disabilities), but for my money I'd go with the Dagi stylus. thanks for a great review!:)

This stylus does absolutely nothing better then any other stylus other then being the size of a crayon. I cant believe this project even got funding. The tip is not that small and there are others that already have a similar size tip or smaller. this offers nothing that isnt already available.

Here's a good app to go with it:

Paper by FiftyThree for iPad on the iTunes App Store

Bear in mind that it's real cost is $8, but I have to tell you the responsiveness of the pens is just mind-blowing.

Yeah I've been playing with that app a bit as well - the clever part is that they make my dreadful handwriting look great...

I've been looking at the Cosmonaut pen for a while now. Finally ordered it yesterday after I found a 20% off coupon code. Looking forward to getting it.
