oStylus for capacitive touch doesn't block your view

(Credit: oStylus)

The oStylus is a stylus for capacitive touchscreens. At first glance, it looks more like something your dentist would use, but it is actually quite a cleverly designed contraption.

A swivelling doughnut-shaped tip lets you hold the oStylus at an angle that you like, and the hole in the middle of the tip allows you to see what you are drawing. To prevent scratches on your screen, the tip has a vinyl film so the metal doesn't touch your device's glass. Watch the demonstration video to see how it works.

Creator Andrew Goss ships the product internationally from Canada. The oStylus costs US$37.50 before freight. A signed, limited-edition US$75 version is also available. Don't want to pay so much for a capacitive stylus? Well, you can always use a sausage. Just remember to eat a hole first to see what you are drawing.

As long as it has good protection from the screen, then it looks good!

maybe a cross hair would make it feel more accurate than a gaping hole?

other than that, AWESOME!
