The Hand Stylus, which reached its initial funding goal in less than two days and will run for another month on Kickstarter, purportedly features the world’s smallest (4mm) retractable, rotating, replaceable tip.
The slim stylus boasts a hexagonal barrel design — like a classic, six-sided, yellow pencil — allowing users to draw, sketch, take notes, retouch photos and more on most touch-screen tablets or phones.
Unlike any other stylus on the market, the Hand Stylus’ slim tip rotates each time it is retracted allowing the tip to wear more evenly over time, according to Steve King, designer of the stylus. Another feature of the stylus is its stainless-steel, removable pocket clip that adheres to the magnets in an iPad’s Smart Cover. The Hand Stylus is made of aerospace-grade anodized aluminum and is available in six gloss or matte colors — black, red, green, blue, pink and orange– that can also be laser engraved to provide a personalized touch. The Hand Stylus comes in a tin gift box, and six-packs of replacement tips are packaged in an aluminum container. All of the packaging comes from recycled or easily recyclable materials.
The ongoing Hand Stylus Kickstarter project has already met its initial funding goal and will begin shipping styluses in July 2012 to the project’s backers and to any additional pledgers who support the project before it closes on June 16, 2012.
