Kool Tools: Woodees iPic
The Woodees iPic is a cool touchscreen stylus product with a unique, ergonomic design that closely resembles a guitar pick. It was created by mobile product and earbud manufacturer, Woodees (www.woodees.com).
Woodees created the iPic as a tool to use with today’s mobile touch screen devices, such as the iPhone, iPad and Android, whose capacitive touch screens employ electric sensors that work with the "pillowiness"of a person’s finger. At US$9.99, the iPic makes a fun stocking stuffer.
Based on a guitar pick design, the Woodees iPic is perfect for musicians. For instance, it works well with Ion’s All-Star Guitar, a full-size electric guitar body designed to transform an iPad into an actual guitar that you can play for a more realistic guitar-learning experience. When you pair the real strumming action of the Woodees iPic with the All-Star Guitar body, users can feel like they are actually playing a guitar.
Though designed with musicians in mind, the iPic's unique shape gives it a great deal of versatility, making it a useful tool for gamers, techies, executives, ladies with long nails or anyone who wants to enhance his or her touchscreen experience. The iPic’s anodized aluminum construction gives it a sturdy feel and a solid weight, and its small size (1.5 x 1 inches) and thin frame (1.5mm) makes it helpful for messaging, navigating, gaming or strumming virtual guitar apps.
